ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

NATIONAL UNITY

?

Hon. J.-J. Blais@Nipissing

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

Since the white paper on the referendum was tabled in the Quebec National Assembly, the Canadian people have been shocked and dismayed at the incapacity of the federal government to respond to that threat to the survival of Canada. Considering the step taken by the Ontario premier and his statement supported by the Liberal leader in that province, and since the Ontario premier, given the inaction of the federal government leader, has been compelled to speak on behalf of Canada and condemn the sovereignty-association option in specific, clear and convincing terms, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Welland (Mr. Parent):

That reasonable time be allotted to the House to hold a debate on the white paper so that hon. members may direct the government towards a referendum policy which the government is idly searching for or has not the courage to adopt.

CANADIAN MENTAL HEALTH ASSOCIATION-REQUEST LEVEL OF FEDERAL FUNDS BE MAINTAINED-MOTION UNDER S O. 43

NDP

Andrew Hogan

New Democratic Party

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

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

Whereas the Canadian Mental Health Association is one of our very valuable national volunteer agencies dealing with Canada's number one health problem, and since the president of this organization has noted that the restraint program carried out by the federal government means the loss of preventive treatment for the emotionally ill in their own area, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sault Ste. Marie (Mr. Symes):

That this government stop playing Scrooge with the mentally ill of this country.

Pierre Raymond Savard

Liberal

Mr. Raymond Savard (Verdun):

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

As the present government intends to cancel or considerably reduce family allowances, and low and medium-income earners will be most severely affected, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saint-Jacques (Mr. Guilbeault):

That the government forgo immediately the implementation of such plans which would be unfair and discriminatory.

THE ADMINISTRATION

LIB

Edward C. Lumley

Liberal

Mr. Ed Lumley (Stormont-Dundas):

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

In view of the speech yesterday by the Minister of Transport (Mr. Mazankowski) in Toronto, where he described his remarks as his first major policy speech, and in view of the fact that his party, when it was in opposition, vehemently opposed policy statements being made outside the House, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Laprairie (Mr. Deniger):

That the Prime Minister instruct his cabinet ministers to make their policy statements in the House of Commons in order to fulfil his campaign pledge of making Parliament more relevant.
