Hon. E. F. Whelan (Essex-Windsor):

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

In view of the dislocation to agricultural production that will result from the declarations made by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce and Minister of State for Economic Development (Mr. de Cotret), and the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Wise) on Friday, October 19, establishing import quotas for chicken without proper consultation with the provincial governments, the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency, or the provincial chicken marketing boards, and based on a nonrepresentative period of importation, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Laval (Mr. Roy):

That the House instruct the government to properly consult the provincial governments, the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency and the provincial chicken marketing boards, and then, at the ministerial level, to renegotiate the chicken import quotas with the United States in order to obtain an import quota of 1 per cent of Canadian production, as recommended by the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency and based on the GATT principle of a previously representative period from 1969 to 1973, and that if the U.S. does not agree to the revision, the matter be placed before GATT arbitration in Geneva.

AIR TRANSPORT

LIB

B. Keith Penner

Liberal

Mr. Keith Penner (Cochrane):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, to introduce a motion on an urgent and pressing matter, namely, the decision of the Department of Supply and Services to terminate the contract

for the weather observation and recording services and closure of the weather station at Geraldton, Ontario.

The Geraldton weather station is one of the top three in Ontario and serves a large area between Thunder Bay and Kapuskasing. With the opening of a new airport at Geraldton next month, air traffic will increase significantly and the closure of this weather station presents a problem for aviation safety in the area.

Therefore, sir, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Thunder Bay-Nipigon (Mr. Andras):

That this House direct the Postmaster General and Minister of the Environment, and the Minister of Transport, to intervene personally in order to prevent closure of the Geraldton, Ontario weather station which would jeopardize air safety in the area.

Mr. Andy Hogan (Cape Breton-East Richmond):

Mr. Speaker, 1 would like to move a motion under Standing Order 43 regarding an extremely urgent and pressing matter.

As the present Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie) stated when in opposition, the Atlantic region is the hardest hit when the government increases its interest rate to record levels, causing increased unemployment, extensive bankruptcies and economic stagnation, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That this House condemns the Minister of Finance for his betrayal of Atlantic Canada and urges his immediate resignation.

Mr. Irenee Pelletier (Sherbrooke):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43 I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion dealing with an important and urgent matter.

In view of the increasing housing needs of the old in Canada, in view of the fact that there are not enough housing units for our senior citizens, and in view of the alarming number of retired people on endless waiting lists of existing homes for the aged, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Matane (Mr. De Bane):

That the Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie), when he brings down his budget in November, allot additional, considerable and the required funds for a larger number of housing starts to meet the needs of our senior citizens with a view to achieving the double objective of reducing our seasonal unemployment to a large extent and reducing the ever-growing number of old people in need of decent housing.
