SENATE DEBATES — April 1, 1981
PETITION FROM SOLIDARITE QUEBEC
Hon. Raymond J. Perrault (Leader of the Government): Honourable senators, on March 19 Senator Flynn asked a question concerning correspondence allegedly received by the Prime Minister from Solidarité Quebec.
Honourable senators, the Right Honourable the Prime Minister did indeed receive a copy of the petition referred to by Senator Flynn. The Prime Minister has no intention of tabling the document in light of the fact that no one in the House of Commons has asked him to do so.
Hon. Jacques Flynn (Leader of the Opposition): Honourable senators, as a supplementary question in connection with that reply, may I ask the Leader of the Government if he would obtain from the Prime Minister a copy of that petition and table it in this house? Or, possibly. His Honour the Speaker, who had indicated that he had received a copy, could make it available to the Senate.
