Hon. Roch La Salle (Joliette):
Mr. Speaker, my question is also for the Right Hon. Prime Minister. A few days ago, he met with all the leadership candidates to ensure that there would be no breach in Cabinet solidarity and also, I believe, to set some guidelines for the conduct and liberty of action of those ministers who are candidates for the leadership. Yesterday, the Minister of Labour ferociously criticized the Minister of Energy, Mines and Resources and former President of the Treasury Board, when he said that he was largely to blame for the problems the Minister of Agriculture had with milk quotas in 1976.
Can the Right Hon. Prime Minister tell the House today whether he feels that the Minister of Labour is to be censured for taking such a stand? I think that all Canadian farmers and dairy producers would be very glad to know was actually responsible for the problems they had in 1976.
