1. Following an inquiry by the Unemployment Insurance Commission in Quebec, which revealed that more than 40 per cent of the claimants did not attend H-PEVAIC interviews when they were summoned in writing as compared to those summoned orally, did the Department of Manpower and Immigration decide to summon candidates in writing despite the study and, if so, for what reason?

2. Did the decision of the Department take into account (a) the intelligibility of the UIC forms (b) the fact that, according to the Centrale des enseignants du Quebec (Quebec Teachers' Union), 40 per cent of the adults of the Province have only an elementary level education and thus the most deprived are the ones who are victims of exclusions and, if so, has such a procedure been adopted across the country?

Mr. Fortin:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to ask a supplementary question.

I am sure the Prime Minister realizes how difficult it is for opposition members to address questions on activities arising from an old responsibility of the former solicitor general. So, given the difficulties that arise from questions which opposition members are entitled to ask on behalf of the Canadian people, would the Prime Minister, since all opposition parties are unanimous, agree to review his decision and allow such an inquiry so we might question the former solicitor general and have the matter cleared up?

Mr. Andre Fortin (Lotbiniere):

Mr. Speaker, with your leave, I would put my question to the present Minister of Supply and Services.

In view of his responsibilities when he was Solicitor General in 1972, in view also of the serious allegations now made because of this inquiry and the court's decisions, and in view of the importance given by the present Solicitor General in his statement of June 17 as to the role the present Minister of Supply and Services played in this matter, and to clarify and give more dynamism and power to his present position, could the minister tell the House whether he intends to make a statement in the near future on his position as to the conduct of a complete inquiry on this matter, either before the House of Commons or before a parliamentary committee? If so, when?
