Mr. MAXIME RAYMOND (Beauharnois-Laprairie):

Mr. Speaker, at the last session
the special committee on social security made
Industrial Development Bank

a report to the house in which there were several recommendations, one of which read as follows:
That the government review the existing regulations governing old age pensions, pensions for the blind, and war veterans' allowances, and consider the advisability of adjusting the eligibility age to a lower level and of increasing the amount of pension.
Is it the intention of the government to give effect to this recommendation?
