SC

Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Social Credit

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43, I request the unanimous consent of the House to present a motion concerning an urgent and important matter.
Since the income of industrial milk producers is decreasing following the changes in the milk production policy of the federal government and because of the excessive imports of milk products, since the federal government, in its fight against inflation, recognizes that other groups in society need an income increase, and since it should do the same as regards industrial milk producers, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lotbiniere (Mr. Fortin):
That the House recommend to the Minister of Agriculture that he revise his milk policy so that the support price of industrial milk be increased in the same proportion as production quotas are being reduced, to guarantee a fair increase in income to those producers, and that the government consider resuming the distribution of milk in schools, on the one hand, and on the other, in underdeveloped countries, through CIDA.
