Yvon Godin NDP Acadie—Bathurst, NB

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-369, An Act to amend the Employment Insurance Act (no interest payable by claimants on benefit repayments or penalties).

Mr. Speaker, this is another good bill. It provides that claimants may not be charged interest or any other penalty for the late payment of benefit repayments or of penalties assessed for violations of the Act because employment insurance belongs to them.
