ROUTINE PROCEEDINGS

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

SC

Eudore Allard

Social Credit

Mr. Eudore Allard (Rimouski):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43, I ask for the unanimous consent of the House to move a motion on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity.

Considering that since 1971 the Unemployment Insurance Commission has been applying certain administrative practices concerning delays in applications for benefits which have been ruled illegal by the Federal Court of Canada, to disentitle thousands of jobless workers; and considering that the Unemployment Insurance Commission bases its decisions on a set of internal regulations which have never been sanctioned by law, I move, seconded by the hon. member for Roberval (Mr. Gauthier);

That this House take all necessary steps, as quickly as possible, to set up a royal commission of inquiry on all administrative practices of the Unemployment Insurance Commission, to prevent jobless workers being denied unemployment benefits.

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Elmer M. MacKay (Central Nova):

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to the provisions of Standing Order 43 involving various investigations and related matters of general concern to the House and the country. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Moose Jaw (Mr. Neil):

That the Solicitor General, assuming the Prime Minister has taken off the Solicitor General's muzzle which was applied last December 4,

report to the House on motions as soon as possible on the status of the myriad of investigations which have been of continuing concern for many months, such as the SIU, Hamilton Harbour, the Society for the Study of the Heritage of Canada, Sky Shops, Mirabel, the Olympic Village, the Report of the Marin Commission of Inquiry, travel agency irregularities and such other investigations and matters with which the Solicitor General has had time to familiarize himself in between prison breaks, parole violations and the development of his peace and security program.

Mr. Speaker, I should like to move a motion of urgent and pressing necessity under the provisions of Standing Order 43.
