He estimated the loss from the fire at about 600 barrels of crude oil.

GMMBS INNRI mvei Jaa. wfeea MOTtara wot OB daylight flaw.) QUEBEC (CP) Manpower Minister Robert Andras said Tuesday he is considering setting up a commission of inquiry to study the operation of the federal unemployment insur- ance program. In a speech to the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) Mr. Andras said experts from the Unemployment Insurance Commission are conducting a review of the Unemployment Insurance Act- to see what kind of legislative changes could solve some of the program's problems. The minister admitted that the new program, enacted in 1971 had created administrative problems because the UIC was not adequately equipped to pro- vide service to persons who genuinely need help or to iden- tify and weed out those receiv- ing benefits to which they were not entitled. He said changes in adminis- trative procedures and increasing benefit control staff resulted in disqualifications or disentitlemonts in 1973, four times as many as in 1972. But many employers, in- cluding many construction firms, still feel the program creates problems for them in finding sufficient staff. Recently CCA president Henry de Puyjajon presented a brief to Mr. Andras suggesting a commission of inquiry might help find solutions. "It is clear that some solu- tions must be Mr. An- dras said, "but the question is what really is the problem'" He did not agree with employers who blame UIC and other programs for their difficulties in finding workers, saying the same problems exist in other western countries. TERMS ARE PROBLEM A commission of inquiry would present "some serious problems in relation to the terms of reference under .which it could operate. "Would it be enough for such a commission simply to look at the administration or at the legislation, or must it address itself to the whole issue of the changing work ethic and the function of a social insurance system in such a revised Mr. Andras said. The minister said he did not want to suggest that all the persons disentitled or Happy Hooker author guilty VANCOUVER
