Hon. HUMPHREY MITCHELL (Minister of Labour):
For the information of hon.
members I table copies in English and French of an exchange of notes between Canada and the United States as to an agreement respecting Unemployment Insurance. The object of the agreement is to ensure that application of Canada's unemployment insurance law and similar laws in the various states of the United States shall be coordinated so that duplication of contributions in respect to the same services and duplication of insurance payments with respect to the same period of unemployment may be avoided. The agreement became effective on April 12 last.
