On March 50, 1968 it was renewed with some additional provisions for a further five years. At the end of that five year term it will be again extended for two years, next month. The United States government has been engaged in the devel- opment of modernized air de- 1 fence systems, said Mr. Rich- ardson. Canada has been kept informed of the progress being made and has co-operated in some aspects of the work being done.

Forrestall mouth-Halifax East) said the maintenance of sovereignty of Canadian northern air space re- quired Canada to renew the NO- RAD agreement at least for this minimum period. Canada has two choices, he pointed out. Canada can go it alone or co-operate with the United States. The Conservative said that Canada's role should continue to'be that of surveillance, detec- tion and identification. That should be Canada's role what- ever the outcome of the present testing by the U.S. of such tech- nological advancement as Over tha Horizon, back scatter ra- dar, Airborne Warning and Con- trol Systems (AWACS) and the improved manned interceptor programming. said the minister.

A solid front of 129 Liberals, New Democrats and Social Credit members Conservatives In defeated 90 a recorded vote and accepted the majority report of the Commons' special committee on food prices. The report, bitterly repu- diated by the Conservatives, calls for establishment of a prices review board to ride herd on runaway food prices. The board would price trends and watch food recommend action to Consumer Affairs Min- ister Herb Gray. The Conservatives sail the Board would be toothless and obscure. They suggested a 90- day freeze on prices, incomes and costs, except for food at the farm gate. Mr. Gray already has said he will announce details of a re- view board within the next few weeks. The question is how much bite he'll give the board. The New Democrats, who agreed the government should decide how the board will work, have said they'll not be satisfied with a "toothless wonder" such as the now-defunct prices and in- comes commission. The entire day wasn't lost for the Conservatives, however. John Diefenbaker clashed with NDP Leader David Lewis and the former Conservative prime minister, now 77, appeared to walk away the winner. He, at least, got the biggest bang out of it. Shaking with delight, Mr. Die- fenbaker prefaced a question in the Commons with the opinion that the NDP never misses an opportunity to attack the United States or the Souh Vietnamese. A bristling Mr. Lewis bounced to his feet and complained that the suggestion was "untrue and improper." He accused the Prince Albert MP of using his position and the affection of members for speeches, not the question period.
