Outside the Commons, Mr. Mackasey said he could not elaborate on his upcoming an- nouncement. He said that more than 98 per cent of the persons receiving benefits have been receiving them by their fourth week of unemployment. In some of the cases when they did not, it had been because employers had not provided evidence of the work- ers having paid into the insur- ance plan. When the new unemployment insurance scheme comes fully into effect on Jan. 15, Mr. j Mackasey said, the revenue de- j I partment will take over the re- j sponsibility of collecting contri-! billions from employers, and there should be more pressure j put on employers to comply with collection regulations. The labor department has previously collected the contri- butions. The minister also said some delay could be blamed on the fact that the Unemployment In- surance Commission has been running two plans for some old one has not completely expired and the new ene has not completely come into effect. During this period there had been heavy retraining require- ments to acquaint employees with the complexity ol the new plan, he said. that the offending men were agents of opposition groups attempting to provoke a political crisis. These opposition parties, which Balaguer did not identify, are being thwarted in their efforts by an "intense purification" of police ranks, the president said, adding: "Those elements which have a criminal background are being eliminated from the force. We are doing away with Ex-president Juan Bosch voices a lot of criticism of other things, but he credits Nivar with "considerable tact and efficiency." One local commentator says: "The people now look upon the police as their allies, and this is something new for this country." How long the peace will last is problematical but, for now, it has enabled Balaguer to achieve a popularity few of his predecessors have known. Diplomats friendlv to sav his achievements have exceeded their expectations. He inherited a lagging economy and a political climate poisoned bv the 1965 civil war which claimed some lives. In the aftermath the economic picture has steadily improved. Growth rates have averaged between six and sever, per cent over the last two years. Public and private investment is up. Construction workers can be seen building roads, factories and office buildings. Inflation contained and retail sales are said to be at record levels. Yet few of this nation's 4.3 million persons can afford to dine in one of Santo Domingo's sidewalk restaurants or go on a small buying spree in a department store. The per-capita income is still low. The opulence in which the small, mostly white Dominican aristocracy lives contrasts sharply with the hovels of the mostly black and mulatto areas of Santo Domingo and the interior.
