Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta FREE-TRADE WITH U.S. A free-trade area, not eco- nomic union, with the United States would be a "sensible Hlution' 'to the problem nf preserving Canada's econom- ic Independence.

Mr. Mackasey told at a news conference Thursday the review is to be completed within 10 days. Any claims held up as a result of bureaucratic errors will be paid within 72 hours oi discovery, he said. The claims are al (hose that have been submittec to the unemployment insurance commission since Dec. 1 and in- clude renewal claims by work- ers already receiving benefits. The commission has been criticized by MPs and others who report that numerous work- ers are experiencing long delays in receiving their first cheques after being laid off. One Conservative MP has gone so far as to speak of an "administrative mess" follow- ing from major revisions in the plan last year. The commission has replied that first payments are made on K per cent of all claims within four weeks. Another 10 per cent of the claims are delayed for legiti- mate reasons. Some for exanv pie, are held up for three weeks as a penalty against workers who are fired for cause or who quit. The remaining two per cent represent errors on the part of the claimants filing their appli- cations, employers and commis- sion personnel. Mr. Mackasey said it was to clean up an estimated claims in the latter category that the 10-day review is being launched.
