April 6, 1957 (22nd Parliament, 5th Session)


Hugues Lapointe (Postmaster General; Minister of Veterans Affairs)


Mr. Lapointe:

Each case has been looked into individually. This procedure has to be followed because in some cases the courier had made an application within a month or two before the decision was made. As he could make this application under the law if he could meet the terms of the section of the act, the application had been processed and he had already received that increase. Naturally, therefore, in those circumstances his case had been settled and he would not receive as much as the others whose cases had not been considered for some years. That made it necessary for each case to be looked into individually.
