India launches campaign for shelters for, poor i By HAM SUNDATl CP Correspondent BOMBAY (CP) A coun- try-wide has been launched in India to provide Ehelter for poor people from climatic exlrcme.s. Every year more than people, mainly villagers, die either because it is loo hot or too cold. At least 500 people perished in a cold wave this v.intcr in northern provinces. Bihar aione accounted for 200 deaths and an equal number of hospital admissions. Until recently the general altitude of provincial govern- ments and village associations lo tliis problem was one of falalislie indifference. Government officials used to say thai there was no money to build shelters for the poor. They said the avail- able resources were needed to build hospitals, schools and roads.

The SPEC executive council vnlcd to hold hearings April 22- 23 on the resignations to decide whclrjcr they would he accept- ed. But Mr. Mallard's state- ment Friday amounted to refus- al lo continue with the organi- zation.

DELHI TAKIv.S LEAD Tliis appears to be no longer Ihe case generally. During the last year hundreds of night shelters have been built in cit- ies and villages. Xew Delhi, the national capital, has given the lead by constructing a net- work of them, mainly in the ancient part of Ihe city known as Old Delhi. Bihar province lias built an estimated 61X1 shelters and poor homes. Ironically, somo of them are located in the dis- trict o[ Hazaribagh where a record number of casualties was reported [hiring a cold wave which ended in March, the billerest in 40 years. The federal ministry of so- cial welfare has askctl provin- cial governments (o give lop priority to projects for mini- mizing cofd-wave deaths. Some provinces like UUar Pradesh, Rajaslhan and Kashmir have offered to give malhring grants lo village councils which build night shelters. A Kashmir official indicated that the provincial govern- ment was thinking of con- structing dormitories where poor people will be provided not only with heds but willi fire-places and room-bcnlers. Kashmir is among the cold- csl areas in northern India. Many villagers in the Srina- gar Valley migrate to the warmer plains of Punjab and Rajasthan during winler. HALTED DEMOLITION Prime Minister Indira diii is reported to be con- cerned over ttie fact that three homeless citizens in (he capilal frozen lo death fast, winter. Mrs. Gar.dhi been lak- ing keen interest in the prob- lems of Lhe homeless people of Delhi.

MonJoy, April 17. 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE IIERAID 5 Commons question period important Tly STKWART MacI.KOD OTTAWA (CD It's gener- ally accepted that Ihe daily Commons question period isn't what it used lo be, hut no nne has any simple solution (or im- proving it. "It's mostly says Con- servative House Leader Gerald W. Baldwin. "A lot of it is pretty feeble." says House Leader Stanley Knowle.s of the New Democratic Parly. But he adds dial "it's something we couldn't do with- oul." Liberal MPs Llame the lack- lustre question period on the op- position, arguing that Ihc qucs- lions themselves are badly framed. Opposition MPs gener- ally blame the government, pointing to cryptic, evasive or abrasive replies. And they also blame the roster system under which cabinet, ministers lake turns attending cnieslion period, and consequently nre sonic- limes absent for topical ques- tions. KF.W ISSUES There also is a widespread be- lief that a lack of juicy issues- such as pipelines or scandals- has tended to dry up the daily period during which MPs can quiz cabinet ministers. Some argue that Speaker Lu- cicn I.ammireux has cooled oil Ihc question period clamping down heavily on queries. Traditionally question period has allowed opposition MPs to haul mil their sliivs and tackle the government in public, on any issue lacing the country. And governments have used it freely lo defend policies andre- Uirn a few stalls. But, oddly, until 1968 there was no reference- lo the daily question period in Parliament's slandinj; orders. Fiom Confederation until that time, qucMiuii.s were asked through an undpistanding that evolved from the British Paru'a- nienl. It all started in Britain when opposition Mi's permitted to ask about House business, and the quizzing gradually spread to other subjects. SL'DJHCTS In Canada. iMPs always have been permitted lo ask questions on other subjects, but there was nolhing in the rules to govern Ihis. And imlil seven years ago there was no time limit on the oral questioning. The limils, varying from minutes lo an hour, depending on the day, were v.orked out by inter-parly negotiations. The ijucslion of time limits was not a problem until Hie 19M pipeline debate, says Mr. Knowlos. "I can remember when there were days without any questions at all, and often the period would he 10 minutes or less. "But Ihe pipeline debate changed all thai, ;m hour or DD minutes of questions and arguments."
