Energy Minister Dona Macdonald "Parliament the cuts were designed to di- vert exports to domestic use and avert an oil shortage. One area to benefit will be Montre- al, until how dependent on im- ported oil. Macdonald said immediate plans called for a reduction in exports to the United States from the current level of barrels a day to 800.000 by Jan. He said he would the oil pro- ducing provinces to propose cutting exports more sharply to barrels a day by July Even if producing provinces do not agree" he, said, a new export formula to be used by the National, Energy Board would cut exports to barrels a day by the" end of next year. The formula takes into account how much oil can be produced, domestic de- mand -arid estimates of how much oil can be conserved during the year. Canada is currently the sec- ond largest source of oil im- ported into the United States. It accounts for about 15 per cent of the total imports, but only between 5 and 6 per cent of total U.S. consumption. Canadian observers point put that U.S. policy calls for energy self-sufficiency by 1980.. Macdonald said his sugges- tions for drastic export cuts were based on a government promise to provide barrels a day for the Montreal market. He rejected any immediate cutting off of exports to the United States, saying: "An UN Backs Palestinians' Claim to Statehood immediate halt to exports would be disruptive to Canadi- an-U.S; tade relations. It would deprive certain north- em U.S. refineries and their communities of the Canadian crude oil that they have tradi- tionally relied on." The United States was in- formed in advance of the change in Canada's export program, he added. Macdonald said the loss of oil revenue from the United States will be partially offset by higher natural gas prices. Earlier this year Canada raised the price of natural gas exports from 60 cents to per thousand cubic feet effec- tive Jan. 1, 1975. In a statement issued in New York, the Mobil Oil Co. said the Canadian move "rein- forces the urgency with which the U.S. must develop its own resources. "Until now most people be- lieved that Canada was America's most secure source of foreign oil. So this action by the Canadian government dra- maUzes Ihe need for us to stop, talking .and start doing what must" be done to ensure that America: has the energy it needs." UNITED NATIONS, M.Y.

Despite the widespread ex- pressions of concern by com- mittee Democrats over Rocke- feller's wealth, he appeared to weather the first round of the hearings without any real damage to his prospects for confirmation.
