moved for leave to introduce Bill C-364, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (amounts not included in earnings).
Mr. Speaker, I would first like to thank the hon. member for Vancouver Island North for having seconded the motion.
The purpose of this bill is to ensure that pension benefits, vacation pay and severance payments are not included in earnings under the Employment Insurance Act and therefore will not reduce benefits under the act.
