Mr. CASGRAIN:

I fully appreciate what the hon. member has said, and I may tell him that a few years ago I was prompted to make changes so that some temporary employees would not get as much as old permanent civil servants in similar situations. I do not know the facts of this case, but I will look into the matter myself to see if we cannot remedy it.
