Mr. Gilles Caouette (Temiscamingue):
Mr. Speaker, I should like to put a question to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce.
Since the month of December 1978, Statistics Canada has indicated that it would no longer produce the wholesale price index. As several industries based their collective contracts on that index taken on a monthly basis, would the minister be willing to ask Statistics Canada to resume publication of those statistics precisely to allow the industries which already have collective contracts signed on the basis of the wholesale prices index to follow its monthly fluctuations?
