Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. The matter of urgent and pressing necessity arises from the importance of dealing with escalating food prices as part of the government's anti-inflation program. I therefore move, seconded by the hon. member for Winnipeg North Centre (Mr. Knowles):
That this House compliments the government on its wise, impartial and imaginative decision to appoint Mr. W. W. Lasby as director of the food and agricultural division concerned with prices and profits in the Anti-Inflation Board since, as the former vice-president of Canada Packers and past president of the Meat Packers Council of Canada, he is obviously a man who knows what price rigging is all about.
