Emmett Andrew McCusker (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of National Health and Welfare)

Liberal

Mr. McCusker:

No. The increases in old age pensions from $25 to $30 in 1947, and $30 to $40 in 1949, were granted as a result of action taken by the parliament of Canada to amend the federal Old Age Pensions Act. Following the passage by the parliament of Canada of

legislation authorizing these increases in pension, the government of the province of Quebec together with the other provinces of Canada accepted the offer contained in the federal legislation, and put into effect the increases authorized by the amending federal law.

The government of the province of Quebec was notified in advance of the federal government's intention to introduce these amendments in 1947 and 1949, but at no time were representations received from the government of the province of Quebec that the amount of pension should be increased.
