ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

DIVORCE

LIB

Ursula Appolloni

Liberal

Mrs. Ursula Appolloni (York South-Weston):

In view of the reports from the Law Reform Commission that as many as 75 per cent of divorced spouses are unable to enforce a maintenance order made by the courts, and in view of the fact that there are at present no reliable statistics covering the number of defaults in payments under maintenance orders in Canada, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Saint-Leonard-Anjou (Miss Begin):

That this House order its Standing Committee on Justice and Legal Affairs to undertake an immediate review of the problem of enforcing maintenance payments ordered under the Divorce Act, to review the history of defaults and to consider the advisability of instituting public means of enforcement.

OFFICIAL LANGUAGES

LIB

Jean-Robert Gauthier

Liberal

Mr. Jean-Robert Gauthier (Ottawa-Vanier):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, 1 ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion concerning an urgent matter of pressing necessity.

Considering that the federal-provincial agreements supporting the teaching of official languages ended on March 31 last; considering that the federal government has morally and financially supported the provinces in their endeavour to teach the official languages by giving them additional funds; and considering that the provinces badly need those additional

funds to maintain some programs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vaudreuil (Mr. Herbert):

That the House state its complete support of the Secretary of State in his negotiations with the provinces to sign multilateral agreements on the teaching of official languages and that failing the unanimous approval of the provinces about accounting procedures and public disclosure of those accounts, the Secretary of State give the reasons to this House and make a public statement indicating the government's position on that very important program.

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact that the unemployment rate is high in the main areas of our country, that there is every indication that it will get higher within the next few months, and that inflation eats away at the people's purchasing power, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Beauce (Mr. Roy):

That the House urge the Minister of National Health and Welfare to take forthwith all necessary steps to introduce legislation calling for the establishment of a guaranteed annual income of universal application and without discrimination, with a view to ensuring the economic safety of all Canadians generally.

James Ross Fulton

New Democratic Party

Mr. Jim Fulton (Skeena):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the fact, first, that the Foothills Pipe Line application for an overland oil route will not now be heard by the National Energy Board and, second, that the Secretary of the Interior in the United States, Cecil Andrus, has given support to the northern tier route, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Vancouver-Kings way (Mr. Waddell):

That an emergency debate be held on this matter in the House of Common; that the government immediately send a strong diplomatic protest to the United States stating unequivocally our opposition to tanker traffic which will endanger the Canadian west coast.
