Mr. MacNEIL:

This is a project that should receive the endorsation of the committee. The work conducted under this scheme has proved a highly satisfactory approach for many a man to employment that may be regarded as permanent. I was going to urge upon the minister the desirability of the department assuming some leadership in connection with the work of local honorary committees, especially in view of the fact that results have .been so beneficial where the work has been efficiently promoted. Could the minister explain why, seeing that there were so many men seeking the advantages of the scheme, it was not more generally applied in the last year?

Mr. MacNEIL:

What are the regulations in regard to unemployment assistance for those engaged in casual employment? A number of cases have been brought to my attention. Men have been getting a small pension and doing casual work. One single man was receiving $15 a month and-I commend him for his effort to keep his self-respect-he secured employment putting in fourteen hours a week during which he received his meals. It was employment limited to a few hours each week by which he earned $9 a month extra, and for that reason his unemployment assistance was discontinued. I brought the matter to the attention of the war veterans' allowance board, and I am pleased to say that my representations were courteously received. I am somewhat concerned about the regulations with regard to men who make an honest and legitimate effort to secure employment and who, in consequence, seem to be penalized.
