Review and amendment of egislation by the Senate after a ill has passed third reading in he Commons should be dis- continued, he suggested in the Senate. Instead, a bill should come to he Senate for consideration after second reading in the Commons. Following study by he Senate, the bill could be sent to a Commons committee with a written report on Senate recommendations. After that, the Senate should not see the bill gain. The Senate should replace its commitment to political neu- trality" should be a condition of a senator's appointment. Senator Manning also reconv present formal procedure of de- m2ncied a limit term of appoint- bates with non-partisan com mittee-like discussions, the for- mer Alberta premier suggested. He has been a senator 2V2 years. "The academic debating of motion and inquiries sel- dom results in any concrete ac- tion or significantly alters the course of Canadian he said. Party affiliation in the Senate should be abolished and "a firm Judge rules jury selection illegal About six persons were in voived in the fraud. Aboud said Municipal nance, a branch office of Mu nicipal Finance and Acceptanc Corp., "must have lost about S milfion" and later went bank rupt. The parent firm still is op- erating. He said he had been told that Municipal Finance had received S2 million from two Greek brothers Jr. Chicago which was to be loaned out at loan-shark rates to members of the "gam- bling and loan-sharking frater- nity."

They forged signa- tures on pest-dated cheques which Aboud then gave to Mr. MONTREAL (CP) Mr. Jus-' tice Yvon Mignault of Court of Quean's Bench ruled Wednes- day that jury candidates were selected illegally for Jacques Rose's trial on conspiracy after the fact in the kidnapping of Pierre Laporte. He ordered that Rose's trial ye put over to the next assizes and a new list of prospective ju- rors be drawn up. Mr. Justice Mignault said "flagrantly illegal" irregula- rities had been committed by the deputy sheriff who drew up the lists. Jury candidates are chosen at random from a master list of residents who pay wtfer taxes in the Montreal judicial district. The judge said he agreed with arguments presented Monday by Crown Prosecutor Fernand Cote that the jury candidates should be dismissed. Mr. Cote said Deputy-Sheriff Ronald Biron was. guilty of "wilful misconduct" in drawing up the lists. Mr. Biron said ear- lier this week .he believes he has been drawing up such lists illegally since he was assigned the duty eight years ago. He said in Court of Queen's Bench he had told his superior "we would get caught one of these days." Lack of personnel had made it impossible to verify the lists Which were not always pre- pared in the presence of a wit- ness, as prescribed by law. Mr. Biron said he was not even certain if he had ever been appointed a deputy sheriff. ajintz.

The department said Wednes- day that effective July 1, Lt- Coi. W. J. Dabros, 40, of Lon- don, Ont., will be promoted to colonel and become director of security at defence headquar- ters here. The colonel is being trans- ferred out of the police and se- curity planning and analysis group in the solicitor-general's department, which has been the subject of some probing by Mr. Nielsen, Conservative MP for Rose, previously acquitted of the October, 1970, kidnapping and murder of Mr. Laporte. also faces a charge of forcibly detaining the former Quebec la- bor minister. Rose has been on bail since his acquittal on the kidnapping charge and remains at liberty. five and seven would be renew- able with the approval of other members of the Senate. "Such an arrangement would ensure a constant new input of new personnel with new Ideas." There was merit to the sug- gestion that one-half of the Sen- ate be appointed by provincial legislatures, although Senator Manning did not favor any sig- nificant enlargement of the Sen- ate beyond the present max- imum of 102 members. Senate reform must come from within Parliament, he said. "If we acknowledge the need for fundamental change, and if we really want to make the Senate relevant. to the times and important to the Canadian people, I suggest that.we take the bull by the horns and see to it that necessary changes are made." Senator Manning called for more investigative work on the part of the Senate, and "a dy- namic new role."
