February 13, 1979

Mr. Gordon Ritchie (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, my question is to the minister in charge of the Wheat Board.

Mr. Gordon Ritchie (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, 1 have a question for the President of the Treasury Board.

Mr. Gordon Ritchie (Dauphin):

Mr. Speaker, I rise, under the terms of Standing Order 43, on a matter of urgent national importance.

In view of the early lapse, on January 1 next year, of the temporary exemption of country elevator agents from the hours of work regulations, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Swift Current-Maple Creek (Mr. Hamilton):

That the Minister of Labour make permanent the hours of work exemption under the Labour Code and thus remove this potentially serious impediment to the movement of grain.
