December 7, 1978

Mr. Bob Corbett (Fundy-Royal):

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 43 and due to the fact that a provision in the budget bill of April, 1978, prohibits persons under 60 years of age who are disabled, or otherwise physically unable to support their families, from drawing an annuity from their registered retirement savings program to which they may have contributed for several years, I would move, seconded by the hon. member for Halifax-East Hants (Mr. Crosby):

That this House do instruct the Minister of Finance to so amend the budget bill to restore to people who are under the age of 60 who are disabled, or otherwise physically unable to support their families, the right to draw an annuity from their registered retirement savings programs to which they might have contributed for years, so that these unfortunate people may look after and raise their families without being a liability to society.
