Statements in the House

Parliamentary Reform January 24th, 1994

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister.

On Thursday the Prime Minister refused to consider relaxing party discipline to permit members of Parliament to represent their constituents. In explaining his stand, the Prime Minister said that his party sticks together because it has all the right policies. Surely if this is the case he does not need the confidence convention to pass his legislative programs.

Does this mean that the government does not intend to honour its promise to allow more free votes in the House?

Petitions January 21st, 1994

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36, I am pleased to present this petition on behalf of the people of Woodrow, Saskatchewan, requesting that Canada Post be restrained from the further closing of rural post offices including their own.
