An Avro Aircraft Co. spokesman said Thursday the company had never received any RCAF inquiry board recommendation to test fur- ther the Mark V wing. He said findings ot such boards are de- livered to "the administrative heads of the RCAF" who then de- cide whether further action is to be taken. He said the wing had been thor- oughly and completely tested and "to suggest that both Avro and ECAF engineers felt there was a strucruarl weakness in the aircraft and that the aircraft was never- theless kept in operational service is fantastic."

RESTRICT TRADE The attorney-general suggested that one way of curbing consump- tion ot rubbing alcohol would be to classify it as an intoxicating beverage within the meaning of the liquor act. He said, however, that this would require control at the retail level and would be a restriction of trade on a legiti- mate product used wrongfully in some cases. On the other hand, he said it might be possible to make it a criminal offence to drink rubbing alcohol. He added, however, that f.h'is would be a very difficult sta- tute to enforce because police' would actually have to catch the man drinking it. If the department decided to re- gulate the sale of rubbing alcohol at retail outlets, it could be done through an order-in-council. But if they made il an offence to drink rubbing alcohol, it would require an amendment to the'statutes and would have to wait until the next session of the legislature. Defence Cuts Unlikely By DAVE McINTOSH OTTAWA cuts in de- fence expenditures are expected in the current fiscal year, officials said 'Wednesday. This could complicate the new Progressive Conservative govern- ment's avowed intention to reduce taxes and increase old-age pen- sions this year. Defence expenditures account for nearly 35 per cent oE all gov- ernment spending and the defence department is considered the only one in which major reductions could be made. The defence budget in the cur- rent fiscal year, which ends next March 31, is Includ- ing defence production and civil defence. This is down about three per cent from the previous year but the saving is accounted for almost entirely by near comple- tion of the Mid-Canada Warning line.
