Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wtdntidoy, May 1970 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD g All Wage-Earners Should Contribute To Jobless Fund OTTAWA (CP) All wage and salary-earners in Canad should make contributions t the unemployment insuranc fund and benefits paid out to un employed people should be in creased, Labor Minister Bryo Mackasey said Tuesday. "My tendency is that univer sality is not only desirable, it' Mr. Mackasey told the Commons labor committee as i considered spending estimates of the unemployment insuranci commission. The minister made clear thai his views mil not necessarily be those expressed by the cabinet in pending white paper propos als for changes in unemploy- ment insurance. But he added: BBYCE MACKASEY Higher Benefit "I'm prepared to take a lot of flack from people who may con- sider unemployment insurance a kind of tax or something they'll never need for them- telves." He also said that the maxi- mum benefit of a week paid to an unemployed man with a family "is hardly enough to live on in He insisted, however, that any Increase in benefits would have to await legislation based on the white paper. He refused to say whteher the white paper would be introduced in the current ses- sion of Parliament. The minister told the commit- tee that Canadian workers are not covered by un- employment insurance, with close to earning more than the current ceiling of for contributors. 'SHOULD BE PROTECTED' "It seems he said, "that those less fortunate, who are out of work temporar- ily, should be given protection by those in a better position." Universal coverage is also im- portant because more and more skilled and professional workers are likely to be displaced tem- porarily as a result of technol- ogical changes, be said. Any increase in the size of benefits now being paid under the present limited set-up would rapidly drain the fund of its sur- plus, now standing at Mr. Mackasey faced strong criticism from members of the committee concerned about de- lays in the payment of legiti- mate claims. Arnold Peters said the computerization of TJIC files means many people are unable to find out why they are not re- ceiving benefits. Mr. Mackasey said that since introduction in the past three years' of computer methods, the commission has increased the percentage of claims ready for jayment within three weeks of declaration of Unemployment to 98.6 per cent in January, 1970, from 88.3 per cent in Janu- ary, 1968. The remaining cases, he said, are often d e 1 a ye d because claimants have failed to provide complete information. He said, lowever, the commission now is lying to program its computers o isolate reasons for delay so they may be corrected more [uiddy. The minister replied there lad been concern about "inten- ive defrauding" by some peo- )le who have collected up to even cheques a week from the und. The UIC had a responsl- )ility to protect the fund which belonged to Canadian workers iid employers. He added that the commission nvestigated claims last year and that only 25 people fere convicted and sent to jail or attempting to defraud the und.

SCOTCH UP NOTCH EDINBURGH (CP) The British wholesale price of sev- eral brands of scotch whisky has gone up by 15 per six shillings and sixpence (85 cents) a bottle. Customers pay an additional 44 shillings la tax. Lettuce cigarettes escaped excise duties because they did not contain tobacco. This did not cost the treasury much. But the prospect of synthetic tobacco could and the loophole is to be closed. Another amendment would provide that any cigarette more than four inches long be taxed as two cigarettes. This also is a treasury move to off- set possible loss of revenue caused by longer cigarettes. The longest on the market now are just under four inches. Another change would get Auditor-General Maxwell Hen- derson off the revenue depart- ment's back.
