Gov t wanted round subsidy figure Long Ottawa up a the government Cut the subsidy it pays Millers for the Purchase of wheat because it wanted a round figure to work with.

Eight of the nine citations were for outbursts during roses trial which ended tuesday and one was for advising a Crown witness not to testify. Terms of $1.10 or $1.25 per Bushel. This would help bring Down prices instead of increase them for the consumer. Or. Lang said the 414-cent change would raise flour production costs Only 1/10 of one per cent. Higher bread prices expected by fall would result largely from rising world wheat prices. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield said the government is reducing its own liability by making the Cut and can hardly expect Millers to show restraint in Price increases. Or. Lang said the reduction will save the government Only $2.7 million. It will still be paying a total of $60 million annually in subsidies. However the Cost increase for Millers will be far higher than 4y2 cents a Bushel. The ministers announcement also raises the wheat Board Price of Domestic wheat from the fixed Price of $3 a Bushel to the going world Price a currently $3.5314. That is roughly a 30-per-cent Rise to the Millers. With the previous subsidy Millers paid the Board $1.9514 per Bushel. They will pay $2.5314 when the new crop year starts aug. I. If the world Price holds. Or. Lang estimated that will raise the Price of bread about one cent a loaf but opposition spokesmen say the Price could Rise several cents or.

He was replying to Allan Lawrence pc a Northumberland Durha who asked Why the government decided to reduce the subsidy at a time when food prices Are going up and there is a $350 million Cash surplus in the Federal Treasury. Or. Trudeau said it is a question of whether the Public wants consumer subsidies right and left or prefers to have taxes go Down.

Vancouver up a when the history of Canada is to be written dispassionately in 20 or 30 years the Federal governments National Energy policy of the 1960s will be considered a a scandal of epic proportions a a premiered Schreyer said Friday. He told the National convention of the new democratic party that he did no to favor nationalization of All Energy resources As a result a and was vigorously applauded a but called for More Public participation in the marketing of Oil and Gas. Premier Schreyer said he hoped the nip would adopt a National Energy policy a that will turn around what has been done in the past few years in Canada. Previous a old party governments were slavishly and dogmatically wedded to the idea that government go into the production and marketing of Forest Mineral and Energy resources said or. Schreyer. Referring to the $92 million loan to Churchill Forest industries Chi Ltd. By the former conservative government in Manitoba the nip Premier said too High a Price had been paid. A never will we repeat the mistakes of the 1960s whereby the Public took All the risk while private ownership retained ownership and the he said in attacking deals made in Newfoundland. Nova Scotia. In Tish co Lune. A the provinces that were similar to the Chi Deal the Manitoba Premier said in a news conference following his speech the Energy Issue in National policy terms a is a problem which really cries out for priority attention Quot and expressed Hope that the delegates to the nip convention would find adequate time to deliberate on that matter. An Energy policy Resolution was to be debated Friday but was postponed until sunday because of disagreement on the scope of the Resolution. A in Canadas economic history and development that is one area More than any other where there has been the greatest default by the Federal when asked Why Energy policy would not be dealt with at the Western economic opportunities conference in Calgary next week. Or. Schreyer replied a a it a really a matter that transcends provincial a i believe the kind of policy we need in the terms of e Energy Reso u Roe Deve i o p in e n t and conservation is a policy that will provide for a much More meaningful involvement of the Public Section a Public ownership of a significant part of the Energy Industry a he said. A up until this Point in time with the exception of the establishment pan Arctic Oil. Which has been one of the greatest things that a been done by old party governments. Our Energy policy in Canada has been one which i m sure historians will have to characterize As a neglect of epic however or. Schreyer said a proposal that All Energy resources be brought under Public control a sounds like classical socialism of the 19th he said while he did no to favor to ii Public ownership a and substantial part of Tho Energy Industry should be owned by the Public. A i think that if one of the majors were to be owned by the Public sector that would suffice. Now whether that a 20, 25 or 30 per cent of the total exploration activity and 20 or 30 per cent of the total refining retailing capability that would be in my opinion nip convention growing Delegate support for wage Price controls Vancouver up a Battle lines appeared to be forming among new democratic party delegates As they prepared for today a debate on Price and wage controls. The ultimate decision could reverberate through the minority Liberal government. So far the nip which holds the balance of Power in the minority parliament has said Little about possible controls and the government has had Little trouble fending off conservative demands for a temporary freeze on prices and incomes. But it would be a different matter if the nip. Through a convention Resolution were to support the conservative demands. The broadly based Cost of living Resolution before the nip convention today said Only that a across the Board wages and prices controls Are not the answer to the present Rise in living Many senior party officials had hoped to avoid saddling the 31-member parliamentary caucus with any firm instructions on the Issue.

Some delegates said there is a growing feeling among the 1,000 attending this nip Federal convention that its time for some Type of Price and wage controls but it was not known How the Resolution would finally emerge. It was considered almost certain that amendments calling for controls would be introduced from the floor. Meanwhile As the delegates plow de through their hefty list of resolutions Many of them involving procedural arguments they put off until sunday another key Battle area the question of Energy. A split developed Over the Resolution on the Issue described by party Leader David Lewis As the most important to face the convention. The disagreement was Over How comprehensive the solution should be. Or. Lewis to the Surprise of no one. Retained the party leadership Friday in the face of a Light Challenge from Douglas Campbell a Toronto taxi Driver. But or. Campbell who earlier hoped he would get 20 votes surprised even himself by collecting 76 or. Lewis received 719 and another 45 were spoiled
