PETITION

LIB

David Berger

Liberal

Mr. David Berger (Laurier):

Mr. Speaker, I have a petition from 1200 residents of the Laurier constituency and the Montreal area.

They humbly state that they are concerned by the continuous escalation in the armaments race and the breakdown of negotiations aimed at limiting and reducing nuclear arsenals. They are encouraged by the efforts of the Right Honourable the Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) to promote a dialogue between the superpowers, and humbly pray and call upon Parliament to support the Prime Minister in his efforts.

Most of these petitions were signed after the Prime Minister's resignation. Therefore, Mr. Speaker, they can be interpreted as expressing the hope that this initiative will be pursued by the Canadian Government and become part of this country's external policy.

Mr. Speaker, consultations have been had on this subject. I think you will find there is unanimous consent for the following motion:

That when the House adjourns on Friday, May 11, 1984, it shall stand adjourned until 2 p.m. on Monday, May 14, 1984.

The reason, Mr. Speaker, is that the new Governor General will be sworn in in the morning of May 14. The House will not sit in the morning but will sit at two o'clock in the afternoon.
