ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

THE ECONOMY

PC

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43, on a matter of some urgency. President Reagan, in this chamber yesterday morning, drew attention to measures his government is taking to cut growth in federal spending, decrease personal income taxes, and eliminate unproductive and unnecessary regulatory structures which stifle economic growth. In light of the fact this country suffers from identical pressures to its economy, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Halton (Mr. Jelinek):

That this government take immediate steps to bring down a new budget to meet the same kind of urgent and pressing economic problems created by this government by reason of its profligate spending and total lack of control over the economy in general.

THE CONSTITUTION

PC

Otto John Jelinek

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Otto Jelinek (Halton):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. Recently the British Labour Party urged the parliamentary labour party to vote against the constitutional resolution in the British House of Commons. Whereas four members of the federal NDP have stated that they will not support the constitutional resolution in this House of Commons, along with NDP Premier Bla-keney's opposition to the package as a whole, and because, on the other hand, the secretary of the federal New Democratic Party, Mr. Robin Sears, has urged the British Labour Party to support the constitutional resolution, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Etobicoke Centre (Mr. Wilson):

That this House urges that, prior to the NDP stating their final position on the constitutional resolution, Mr. Broadbent, the Leader of the NDP, convene a meeting of Socialist International to include "the four horsemen" from his own caucus, the Premier of Saskatchewan as well as himself, so that the position of Socialist International can be clarified in order to avoid any misunderstandings to the British and Canadian public.

BANKS AND BANKING

NDP

Margaret Anne Mitchell

New Democratic Party

Mrs. Margaret Mitchell (Vancouver East):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the fact that profits of eight major chartered banks soared to $459 million during the first quarter of 1981, with the Royal Bank pocketing a 76 per cent increase in profits, the Bank of Commerce 69 per cent, and the Bank of B.C. winning a 218 per cent bonanza, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Broadview-Greenwood (Mr. Rae):

That this House urge the government to stop this blatant profiteering by Canada's chartered banks and force them, as a condition of doing business, to allocate a significant portion of their profits for a mortgage assistance fund which will reduce mortgage interest rates to help young Canadians purchase a first home.

INDUSTRY

Normand Lapointe

Liberal

Mr. Normand Lapointe (Beauce):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 in connection with an urgent matter. In view of the increased imports of footwear in Canada; in view of the conclusion of the Anti-dumping Tribunal to the effect that in the absence of quotas, the share

March 12, 1981

of the market taken by the domestic producers would have continued to decline, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Sherbrooke (Mr. Pelletier):

That the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce (Mr. Gray) look fully into the possibility of taking special steps to protect other than rubber footwear in countries with low salaries, in order to allow Canadian industries to proceed with their restructuring.
