Mr. Walter McLean (Waterloo):
Madam Speaker, the Standing Committee on Health, Welfare and Social Affairs tabled in this House on May 6, 1982, its third report-an inquiry into violence in the family. Among its many recommendations the committee calls on this government "to appropriate initial capital costs of new emergency shelters and funds for second stage housing" to offer protection and security to the thousands of Canadian women who are victims of domestic brutality. In light of financial obstacles facing emergency shelters, including Anselma House, a shelter for battered wives in the Waterloo riding, arising from CMHC's refusal to allocate funds for their second stage housing project, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Calgary West (Mr. Hawkes):
That this House urge the government to adopt the committee recommendation regarding second stage housing without delay and thereby demonstrate concern for victims of family violence.
