New Democratic Party

Mr. Lome Nystrom (Yorkton-Melville):

Mr. Speaker, I, too, rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43 to present a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity. The gravity of the slide in farm incomes-down about one quarter from 1975-has been brought home once again by the recent layoffs of 500 workers by Massey-Ferguson in Brantford.
To remove some of the uncertainty facing farmers and the industries that depend on them, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Greenwood (Mr. Brewin):
That this House urge the government to announce immediate steps to stimulate the farm economy.
