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.
