ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

INCOME TAX


5.0. 43


PC

Stan Darling

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Stan Darling (Parry Sound-Muskoka):

Madam Speaker, the deadline for the filing of income tax forms is only weeks away, yet this year taxpayers and officials in the Department of National Revenue are caught in a horrible muddle. Officials are advising taxpayers to complete their forms as if proposed tax measures contained in the budget of last November were law, or face retroactive charges with interest penalties. Taxpayers following these instructions are also being told that no tax returns Tilled out according to the budget will be processed by the department until the measures in the budget become law. People claiming refunds could be waiting for their money for a long time. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That the Minister of Finance immediately present his tax change measures to the House for debate; Canadian taxpayers must be able to file claims based on actual, not hypothetical legislation, and officials in the Department of National Revenue must have the authority to process these claims.

AGRICULTURE


5.0. 43


PC

Constantine George (Gus) Mitges

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Gus Mitges (Grey-Simcoe):

Madam Speaker, the decision of the Department of Agriculture no longer to pay the cost of grading beef, pork, veal and lamb carcasses in abattoirs will have a spiralling effect upon the cost of meat to consumers because they will have to absorb these costs. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Simcoe North (Mr. Lewis):

That the government reconsider this decision which will take added millions of dollars from consumers' pockets in even higher food costs in these already

difficult times of high unemployment, high inflation, and poor economic conditions.

FINANCE

PC

Vincent Martin Dantzer

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Vince Dantzer (Okanagan North):

Madam Speaker, the word is out that the Minister of Finance (Mr. MacEachen) is contemplating a new budget. Since we have been advised that the Minister of Employment and Immigration (Mr. Axworthy) has funds available for persons who need retraining, and since it is in the interest of Canadians to avoid another disastrous budget at all costs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for North Vancouver-Burnaby (Mr. Cook):

That this House instruct the Minister of Employment and Immigration to provide the Minister of Finance and his departmental bureaucrats with a short course in simple economics and the basics of the free enterprise system, to ensure that the new budget will assist and promote economic recovery in Canada rather than destroy it.

INDIAN AFFAIRS

NDP

Peter Ittinuar

New Democratic Party

Mr. Peter Ittinuar (Nunatsiaq):

Madam Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. Since the 1950s the Micmac Indians of Newfoundland, instead of being registered as Indians under the Indian Act, have been administered by the province through a federal-provincial agreement, which therefore denies these Indians the right to entitlements under the Indian Act. Therefore I move, seconded by the hon. member for Cowichan-Malahat-The Islands (Mr. Manly):

March 31, 1982

5.0. 43

That this House direct the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development to take immediate steps to finalize the registration of the Micmac Indians of Newfoundland under the Indian Act and to assume complete responsibility for funding as is done elsewhere in Canada.
