Mr. Speaker, for those who have made applications for employment insurance because they have lost their jobs due to circumstances beyond their control, we are trying to ensure that they get those benefits just as quickly as possible. We understand that at this time of year it is even harder for them to deal with day to day expenses. That is why we are putting extra resources to process these claims. We do that every year and we are doing it this year.
