Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock):
Mr. Speaker, I rise under Standing Order 43 on a matter which on the surface may not appear to be of urgent and pressing necessity but which recognizes that we are fast approaching the end of the month when pension cheques will be going out. The House is well aware of the firm belief of the Postmaster General (Mr. Mackasey) in incentives within the work force as well as his commitment for increasing the efficiency of the Post Office. Since a great many businesses across Canada suffer from an interruption in the postal service, and since the lives of many Canadians, especially those depending on pension incomes, are frustrated by a disruption in the postal service, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Oxford (Mr. Halliday):
That the Postmaster General be instructed by this House to institute a policy whereby all postal employees will receive their pay cheques through the regular mail service using the postal code.
