Mr. Don Cameron (Kamloops-Shuswap):

Mr. Speaker, 1 hope hon. members will agree to my motion. I rise, under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Last Sunday night, on the CBC program "The Nation's Business", three answers were edited from the tapes of the House of Commons. The hon. gentlemen asking the questions clearly lacked the moral fibre, the courage of their convictions and the intestinal fortitude-

THE BUDGET

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I move that this House notes that the only generous part of the budget delivered by the Minister of Finance (Mr. Crosbie) was on page 83 of the Budget Papers, namely, that he is removing the duties on Bible recordings, certain bird-scaring devices and also the duty on farm storage tanks for animal waste.

THE BUDGET

Allan Joseph MacEachen (Official Opposition House Leader; Liberal Party House Leader)

Liberal

Hon. Allan J. MacEachen (Cape Breton Highlands-Canso):

Mr. Speaker, I have a question for the Prime Minister. In view of the budget statement last night, painting a picture for the future for Canada of double-digit inflation, increased unemployment, higher taxes and slower economic growth, is the Prime Minister contemplating any special steps to try to convince the House of Commons that it should support this budget?

Will he, for example, be writing to the leader of the Social Credit group before the votes, giving him special reasons why that group should support the budget and, if so, would he make available copies of his correspondence to the rest of us, which might assist us in considering this extraordinary document?

Right Hon. Joe Clark (Prime Minister):

Mr. Speaker, the special measures that we intend to use to encourage the House to support the budget are the measures that were introduced and announced by the Minister of Finance last night in a budget which has been widely celebrated as the most honest budget in years.

Charles Joseph Clark (Prime Minister)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Clark:

It is also a budget which spells out specifically steps the government intends to take-steps, by the way, which the former government, although they were urged upon it, refused to take-to help small business, to help women and to help a number of groups in the country. We believe the measures that are included in that budget will recommend themselves to the House. If the House is interested in having economic recovery generated in the country, then the House will support this budget.
