Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion dealing with a very important matter.

Considering that the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency has announced that under a Canada-United States agreement the import quota of American poultry was 22,250 tons this year and that it would be doubled next year, considering that the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce is issuing additional import permits and that Ontario has invaded the Quebec market with its quota, following the Quebec threat to withdraw for those reasons from the Canadian Chicken Marketing Agency, I move, seconded for the hon. member for Beauce (Mr. Roy):

That the House urge the government to renegotiate the Canada-United States agreement of October 22, to protect the interests of Canadian producers as well as Canadian slaughterhouses.

FINANCE

Russell Gregoire MacLellan

Mr. Russell MacLellan (Cape Breton-The Sydneys):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity regarding the projected increased profits in the oil industry of 1,000 per cent, meaning that by the mid-1980s foreign-owned firms producing oil and gas in Canada will be either repatriating large flows of dividends or acquiring large, new Canadian investments outside the non-conventional oil and gas producing sector. Therefore, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Essex-Kent (Mr. Daudlin):

That the government allow the oil and gas companies to retain a certain percentage of their quarterly profits, while placing the balance with the government in trust, to be drawn down by and paid to the respective oil and gas companies if and when these drawdown amounts have been expended by those companies in oil and gas exploration or certain aspects of research and development.

THE BUDGET

NDP

Raymond John Skelly

New Democratic Party

Mr. Ray Skelly (Comox-Powell River):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In last night's budget speech, the Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie) took pride in comparing his budget to the farsighted budget delivered by his grandfather to the Assembly of the Dominion of Newfoundland 51 years ago.

Noting that shortly after the delivery of that budget the Dominion of Newfoundland was bankrupt and that the Dominion was compelled to seek colonial status from the government of Great Britain, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Selkirk-Interlake (Mr. Sargeant):

That the Prime Minister table in this House records of any discussions or any correspondence between the Government of Canada and the British government dealing with the possible surrender of responsible government to London.
