February in Britain Worst Trade Deficit in History LONDON' (AP) Britain suffered its worst monthly Irade deficit-in its history dur- ing February, the government announced loday. The Department of Trade said Ihe country lost million in its trade with Ihe rest of Ihe world last month. The previous worst deficit was recorded in January, when the government an- nounced a trade loss of million dollars. The government blamed the unprecedented trade loss of the past two months on two key factors; the short work week their in force, and Ihc recent increases in Arab oil prices. The former Conservative-' government put industry on a Bsroelis to Seek Oil Near Dead Sea TEI, AVIV Europe- an and Israeli companies are planning a imiltiinillion dollar search for oil in Ihe dcscrl near the Dead Sea, the de- veloper of Israeli's first oil wi'l! announced loday. Drilling might begin within six months. The Finance Ministry out- lined a 530 million drilling and research program for this year's budget, in view or the world energy crisis. It said several investors were expecl- ed lo begin talks Wednesday on Ihe five-year exploralion project. Geological evidence snowed that the Dead Sea area '''must have been an oil bearing area long ago." said Yckulie] Fed- ermann an Israeli hole] exocu- livc whose firm is organizing Ihe fuel search. He added that Ihe under- ground oilfields of the Middle Kasl were almost certain lo run under (he Jewish slate be- cause "God cannol have'given all the oil to our neighbors." Federinann nor the finance Ministry would identi- fy Ihe prospective European investors, but Federmann said in an inlerview lhal Ihe pro- posed consortium represented interests in the Netherlands, West Germany, Switzerland, Hrilain and Belgium. Israel produces little fuel within ils own borders, and relies on the captured tian oilfields at Abu Rudeis in Ihc Gulf of Suez for more-than 50 per cent of its needs. Fires have been blazing in three offshore wells there since the beginning of Janu- ary. Unofficial estimates put revenue losses because of Hie fires at nearly a day, and officials said foreign ex- perls would begin work later this week to extinguish them. They were started by a stray Hawk missile. Aside from Ihe Abu Hudcis complex, taken from Egypt in the 1967 war, Israel has only Iwo small oilfields of ils own. Past oil exploration in Israel has netted only about mil- lion. In a development, refinery officials reported Monday that million would he spent in Ihe next four years lo expand Israel's refining capacity and petro- chemical industries. three-day work week Uisl Dec.

The strike was settled in March after the Labor govern- ment won Feb. 28 elections. Lost export orders from the. three-day week had been cx- peclcd lo produce a large Irade deficit. The government said oil im- ports cost Britain throe, limes more last inonlh than (hey did a year ago. Tlie nation im- ports some 80 per cent of its oil and Ihis too had a key effecl on the poor trade fig- ures. There was no immediate re- action in financial markets to the trade figures.
