Note 1. Under the provisions of the unemployment assistance agreements, the provinces may submit claims up to six months after the month in which assistance was given. Because of this the figures shown include in each case payments with respect to the previous six months. Through a further provision, claims may be submitted at any time for expenditures during a retroactive period of up to a year prior to the date on which the agreement was signed and some of the figures in the table contain such retroactive payments.
Note 2. All twelve provincial and territorial governments did not have claims submitted under the program until 1960. Participation as shown by submission of claims included six jurisdictions in 1957, eight in 1958, nine in 1959 and twelve in 1960.
Note 3. Payments to the province of Quebec equal 80 per cent of the amount claimed, pending completion of audits.
With respect to part 6 of the question, 16 commissions have completed their reports. The progress made by the others is not a matter on which ministers are able to report. With leave of the house, Mr. Speaker, I will table the various orders in council to which I have alluded. To place them on the record would simply be to place thereon unnecessary material.
