March 21, 1979 (30th Parliament, 4th Session)

PC

Charles Joseph Clark (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Clark:

Mr. Speaker, one fundamental question the Deputy Prime Minister skated away from is whether the Minister of Industry, Trade and Commerce was expressing the position of the government when he expressed those views as a minister. I would like the Deputy Prime Minister to come to that.
I would like him, also, to tell us now when he intends to introduce into this parliament, so that we might amend it, the anti-boycott legislation which we consider inadequate but which has been introduced into this House of Commons. When will it be before the House? Is it a priority bill? Does the Deputy Prime Minister not agree that the statements of his colleague make it a priority bill now, even if it was not before?
