Mr. Denis Ethier (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell):
Mr. Speaker, 1 rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that our chicken producers are faced with serious problems because of the high import quotas accorded by Industry, Trade and Commerce, and due to the fact that the Minister of Agriculture (Mr. Wise) said in a statement in this House on April 13, 1976, that the government should transfer the control of all dairy import quotas from ITC to the Canadian Dairy Commission, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Laprairie (Mr. Deniger):
That the Minister of Agriculture be consistent with his philosophy of 1976 and ask his government to transfer the control of chicken import quotas from ITC to the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency.
Sub-subtopic: REQUEST THAT CHICKEN IMPORT QUOTAS FALL WITHIN JURISDICTION OF CHICKEN MARKETING AGENCY-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
