Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I would like to draw the attention of the parliamentary secretary to questions Nos. 580 and 581 standing in my name. I submitted those questions on November 16. Over a month ago the hon. member for Lincoln (Mr. Andres), in answer to a similar complaint of mine, said I would have an answer soon. These are questions which are important to all Canadians. They are in regard to the government's propaganda wing, namely the Canadian Unity Information Office, and have to do with the cost to the Canadian taxpayers.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Trudeau) is in his place, and this is of some interest to him. I think that Canadians have the right to know the cost and the other information I am seeking in these questions. I say to the parliamentary secretary that I

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I rise under the provisions of Standing Order 43. In consideration of the recent announcement by the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg that the abortion clinic will be moved to a separate location and operated by a private group for the expressed purposes of making a profit, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Lisgar (Mr. Murta):

That the Minister of Justice consult today with his provincial counterpart to discuss concrete proposals that would prevent an American interest from investing over $100,000 in an abortion clinic which, in effect, will offer abortions on demand. Such a clinic would be both a violation of the right to life and the Criminal Code of Canada.

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I ask for the

unanimous consent of the House to withdraw a private members' bill standing in my name, namely, Bill C-351, to amend the Canada Labour Code (right to work). Upon close scrutiny of the bill I have determined that the bill would challenge the Rand formula. This was not my intention in the bill, so I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to withdraw this bill.

Mr. Dean Whiteway (Selkirk):

Mr. Speaker, I have a motion to put forward under the terms of Standing Order 43.

In consideration of the fact that the most effective rehabilitation in our federal prisons takes place as a result of the application of moral and spiritual values to the lives of inmates, I ask leave to move, seconded by the hon. member for Portage (Mr. Masniuk):

That this House direct the Solicitor General to reverse his decision to dismiss two of the three chaplains at Stoney Mountain penitentiary and that he do this immediately.
