Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):
Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I seek the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on an important and urgent matter.
As many persons of 60 to 64 years of age, who are not married or recognized as spouses under Bill C-62, are experiencing hardships for lack of a job or adequate income to meet their needs, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier):
That the House urge the Minister of National Health and Welfare to introduce immediately to the House a bill authorizing the federal government to pay persons of 60 to 64 years of age not covered by Bill C-62 a guaranteed annual income and the equivalent of the old age pension plus the supplement.
Subtopic: SOCIAL SECURITY
Sub-subtopic: SUGGESTED PAYMENT OF GUARANTEED ANNUAL INCOME TO PERSONS 60 TO 64-MOTION UNDER S.O. 43.
