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.
