Mr. Leonel Beaudoin (Richmond):
Mr. Speaker, with your permission I would like to ask a question of the Minister of Manpower and Immigration.
Several persons who were in receipt of unemployment insurance benefits will receive shortly or have received letters informing them that they have been overpaid. They are being asked to reimburse the money immediately. These people have been using the money to live on during the winter and are not in a position to reimburse it. Is it the intention of the minister to take the necessary measures in order to delay reimbursements by these people until they have resumed work?
