THE CANADIAN ECONOMY

LIB

Herbert Eser (Herb) Gray

Liberal

Hon. Herb Gray (Windsor West):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the sharp increase in the cost of living announced today of 9.6 per cent, the highest since last May, an increase which reflects increases in the cost of oil and natural gas and in interest rates, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Ottawa Centre (Mr. Evans):

That this government be condemned for its intention to increase the price of gasoline and fuel oil by some 30 per cent and for its interest rate policy, which are causing hardships for consumers, small business people and Canadians generally.

LIB

Herb Breau

Liberal

Mr. Herb Breau (Gloucester):

Mr. Speaker, 1 rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the total absence of a regional economic development strategy in the Speech from the Throne, and the stated objective of the Prime Minister (Mr. Clark) when he was in opposition that regional development would be central in his party's economic policies, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cape Breton Highlands-Canso (Mr. MacEachen):

That the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce and the Minister of State for Economic Development, sitting in the other place, be removed from the inner cabinet and his chairmanship of the economic development committee and be replaced immediately by the Minister of Regional Economic Expansion, the hon. member for Central Nova.

COMBINES INVESTIGATION ACT

NDP

Svend Johannes Robinson

New Democratic Party

Mr. Svend J. Robinson (Burnaby):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

In view of the recent conflicting statements both inside and outside the House by Conservative cabinet ministers on the trucking affair, and in view of the serious constitutional question arising from the intervention by the Minister of Transport (Mr. Mazankowski) and a possible prosecution under the Combines Investigation Act and, finally, in view of the complete lack of understanding on the part of the Prime Minister (Mr. Clark) of the serious nature of this question, 1 move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):

That this House call upon the Prime Minister to remove from his cabinet the Minister of Transport, the Minister of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, and the Minister of Justice pending a comprehensive inquiry into these very serious matters.

Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 to ask for the unanimous consent of this House to introduce an urgent and important motion.

In view of the exceptional work she has done for 30 years to the most disinherited people of our planet, and in view of the universal recognition which was given yesterday to Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who was awarded the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kingston and

James Alexander Jerome (Speaker of the House of Commons)

Mr. Speaker:

Notwithstanding the considerable degree of collaboration involved in the presentation of this motion, I hope the House will forgive me if I again issue a caveat about using Standing Order 43 for congratulatory motions. I shall not disallow the present motion, however; it is obvious there is a great deal of agreement with regard to it. Is there unanimous consent?
