Hon. Monique Begin (Saint-Leonard-Anjou):
Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with an important matter of pressing necessity.
In view of the fact, as we all know, that 1979 has been designated as the International Year of the Child by the United Nations and that October 24, that is today, has been selected as the Day of the Child by the ministers of education in Canada, I move, seconded by the member for Westmorland-Kent (Mr. LeBlanc):
That the House urge the government to state unequivocally that family allowances paid to Canadian mothers for their children will remain universal.
Subtopic: SOCIAL SECURITY
