A. C. Bennett met in a head-on debate on financial policy in the British Columbia legislate e Thursday night with Mr. Bennett accusing the New Democratic Party government of wanting to gamble in the stock market with civil service pension funds. The two political leaders clashed during debate on a bill authorizing the government to invent pension funds in the capital stock of any corpora- tion. Mr. Bennett, leader of the Social Credit party, warned that such investments would be imprudent at a time when the world is going through what he called the most dangerous monetary crisis in its history.

The premier added there's no way his government is going into the market in a massive way. He said the government plans be careful and he said "Gave us a year, I will take the responsibility Mr. Bennett replied that if there is a run on parity bonds of B C. crown corporations, B.C. Hydro and B.C. Rail, then there might not be the sarae extent of pension plan funds available to cover such a run. If the gov- ernment plans a new financial policy, he said, it should change its approach to the parity bonds, which are small denomination bonds redeem- able upon demand. "With prime interest rates going up and if there is a new policy, you should plan on the long-term refunding of the parity Mr. Bennett said. SEES TROUBLE "There could be a raid and if the money was not there in a few years you would be in trou- ble. If your policy (on pension fund investments) is not to be as rigid as ours, my advice would be to make the parity bonds a long term issue."

Latta, serving a life sentence, had lus case re-examined by the attorney-general's depart- I ment after an Edmonton man ,said that a former city taxi j j driver claimed to be responsible j for the murder j Mr Leiteh told the legislatire the claim lias been thoroughly I examined. The investigation, however, "has not created a situation in which I think the provincial government would be justified in making any repres- entations to the (federal) min- ister cf justice." Returns from the three groups have been becalmed in the revenue department be- cause new deduction regulations had not received parliamentary approval. Third reading means the amendments go to the Senate for final approval, then get rou- tine royal assent.
