ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

SUGGESTED NEW PRICING REGIME-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43

PC

William J. Yurko

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Bill Yurko (Edmonton East):

Madam Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43. The resumption of energy pricing meetings with the producing provinces is welcome. In support of the success of such meetings I move, seconded by the hon. member for Etobicoke Centre (Mr. Wilson):

That the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources announce prior to the meetings a revised comprehensive pricing regime for conventional oil production, oil sands production, heavy oil production, tertiary oil production and offshore and frontier oil production as the basis for successful negotiations with the producing provinces, thereby providing for Canadian oil self-sufficiency during this decade.

THE ECONOMY

PC

Donald Alex Blenkarn

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Don Blenkarn (Mississauga South):

Madam Speaker, the base rate of inflation excluding food and fuel is at a new high of 10.2 per cent over a year ago. The increase in the price of food and fuel is not the prime cause of inflation. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That in view of the fact that the government's fiscal stance, criticized by the Bank of Canada and castigated by almost every economic group in Canada, is clearly wrong and proven to be inept, the Minister of Finance forthwith introduce a new budget and new estimates to be presented to this House changing the direction of government policy, to come to grips with inflation.

HEALTH CARE

NDP

William Alexander (Bill) Blaikie

New Democratic Party

Mr. Bill Blaikie (Winnipeg-Birds Hill):

Madam Speaker, I rise pursuant to Standing Order 43. In view of the fact that in the view of the Minister of National Health and Welfare (Miss Begin) there is an emerging consensus across Canada that no extra billing will be acceptable in this country and that such a consensus should be reflected in the upcoming renegotiation of EPF and in view of the fact that in the meantime Canadians continue to be unfairly burdened by extra billing, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Saskatoon East (Mr. Ogle):

That the Minister of National Health and Welfare be instructed by this House that leadership be shown on this issue through the implementation of Mr. Justice Hall's recommendation that the federal Medical Care Act "be revised" by the federal government, as only it can, "to provide that extra billing by physicians inhibits reasonable access to services and is contrary to the intent and purpose of the act" in the hope that this will put moral pressure on the provinces to act now in the interests of Canadians and not wait for renegotiation of EPF, as extra billing should not be a negotiable item in the First place.

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

Peter Joseph Lang

Liberal

Mr. Peter Lang (Kitchener):

Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. In view of the obvious filibuster now being conducted by the Conservative opposition on the Constitution, and in view of the fact that this is preventing the government from dealing with important economic issues and important energy issues, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Kent (Mr. Bossy):

That this House extend its sitting hours until all questions can be put on the constitutional resolution.
