Land purchases hy Jews banned Income tax refunds delayed in Commons OTTAWA (CP) Income-tax amendments to increase per- sonal exemptions for the dis- abled, for students and for older persons will be considered, and may be passed, by the Com- mons today. The exemptions are among tax measures left over from the Liberal government budget of last May. The exemptions were included on the 1972 income tax forms. Thousands of refunds based on them are being de- layed until the measures are enacted. The Commons gave second reading to the enabling bill Fri- day. Today members meet in committee of the whole to study it in detail. Since the bill already has un- dergone two days of debate it is not likely to be around much longer this It possibly could be sent back to the House for third reading this evening. With personal tax amend- ments put of the way the Com- mons likely will turn its atten- tion to lobster pots, crab traps, eyeglasses and sewage. All these and more are included in a government bill to reduce some federal sales taxes. The bill received first reading April 3. It also would exempt from sales taxes all goods produced by the labor of individuals who are "blind, deaf and dumb or mentally retarded." None of the opposition parties has voiced objection to the bill though the New Democratic Party is expected to reiterate its stand against further gov- ernment assistance to business. The Progressive Con- servatives have taken the atti- tude that if these measures are so imnortant they should have been passed during the last ses- sion of the House.

JERUSALEM (AP) The Is- raeli government decided Sun- day against letting Jews buy real estate in occupied Arab territory, apparently fearing it might complicate future peace negotiations The decision was a serious setback to Defence Minister Moshe Dayan vho fathered the idea of these land purchases A cabinet announcement said there would be no change in the ban on priva'e land buying in occupied territories. Since Da-1 an made his proposal, Israeli I businessmen have flooded the' occupied areas around Jerusa- lem seeking land for sale. Dayan had argued that even after a peace treaty. Israelis should be allowed to live any- where in occupied territory. Therefore, he suggested they be permitted to buy land, at least in the areas Israel will include in the new. secure borders it demands as part of a peace pact. But other leaders, such as Deputy Premier Yigal Allon and Foreign Tvlinister Abba Eban. contended that such a discourage the Arabs from making peace, and v.ould undermine Israel's claim Continue that it sets no preconditions for a settlement. Supporters of the Dayan plan say numerous Arabs are willing to sell their land to Israeli buy- ers who can no longer afford the skyrocketing cost of real es- tate in Israel proper. They also noted that m the IBSOs, much of what today is Israel was pur- chased by Jews from Arabs. The state radio .said that in the last two years. Israelis have purchased 25.000 acres of land through ''conditional deals" with Arab proprietors, whereby money is paid, but the buyer cannot assume ownership un- less the government removes the ban. With the latest decision, the illegality of these purchases- punishable by a S400 fine or five years will remain in force. OTTAWA (CP) Af- fairs Minister Jean Chretien says the question of aboriginal rights must be settled on a re- gion-by-region basis because of legal implications arising from various treaties. The minister said on the CTV television program Question Pe- riod, taped Fridav for broad- cast Sunday, no national abori- ginal rights policy can be adopted by the government un- less it chooses to ignore all treaties. The government has not taken this view, he said. "We make a distinction be- tween Indians who have signed treaties and those who have not signed." UNITED NATIONS (AP) Egyptian, Jordanian and Svrian UN delegates asked Secretary- General Kurt on Sat- urday to prevent Israelis from buying Up occupied Arab land. A. UN spokesman said heim will take whatever action he thinks necessary "at an ap- propriate moment" The issue is extremely sensi- tive because Arab nations have made return of the occupied territories a condition for peace in the Middle East. for fire victims m MONTREAL (CP> Demoli- tion teams worts tcarinp down the charred walls of a apartment building early today as the search con- Unucd fcr victims of a Sunday morranc Wa7f killed at least six persons.

For Indians not covered by- treaties, he said, the govern- ment bears a responsibility for reaching a settlement and "nego- tiations have already started with some groups. He declined to say specific- ally how far the government is prepared to go in negotiations but noted that all treaties in- volved "a financial considera- tion." In addition, he said, natives could claim a right to some lands. On another matter, Mr. Chre- tien gaid Indians in Northern Quebec are not necessarily op- Dosed to the James Bay power development.
