QUAD, program will be named in the Commons soon after the Easter recess, acccrc'inji to Health Minister Marc Lalonde. 'Hie failed drugs represent some three per cent of the drugs tested under the govern- ment's relatively new QUAD program, which covers what one senior health officials de- scribes as some of the "most widely-prescribed. medicaliy- important single entity drugs marketed in Canada. _ Opposition members in the j Commons and representatives j of the medical profession have urged the Liberal govenni? 2111 to "make the names of the failed drugs public. All of the failed drugs have been withdrawn from the market but federal of- ficials admit that some of the drugs may still be in the hands of consumers. The failed drugs include two j brands of digoxin and three i brands of digitoxin, two related heart drugs for which dosage is extremely critical: nine brands of four leading tranquilizers: one brand of the '''morning after and one brand of the antibiotic tet- j racyclire. Health Minister Lalonde said i Monday outside the Commons j that government experts have raised the question about whether naming the failed j drugs, e ven in the Commons, i might expose the Crown to civil Jaw suits. j Mr. Lalonde, a lawyer him- j self said that be has studied the legal opinions ar.d he finds it i '-extremely unlikely thai this; would be a problem." i Home is an igloo Tony raginton, 32, of Toronto, shows a model of o house he i Picton, Ont.

The minister has been giving non-committal answers in the Commons lately as Jack Mar- s ha 11 P u m b e r-St. George's-St. Barbe) and Stanley K n o w 1 e s North Centre) have asked when new pension legislation is forth- coming. It now appears that the new legislation will not be in- troduced until after the forth- coming Easter recess, although there had been hopes it would be law by now. It may not contain all the pro- posals that resulted in happy comments from veterans organ- izations and such party spokes- men as Mr. Marshall and Mr. Knowles. Under the new formula, the basic 100 per cent disability pension would be brought ut> to the level of the after-tax, take- home pay of a composite'group of unskilled public servants. The nension would increase annually by the same per- centage as the pay of the public servant group, who are mem- bers of a union. This would, in effect, link the pensions to a rising standard, rather than cost of living. MINISTERS BALKING That is the part of the for- mula that some members of the cabinet are reported balking at, although they apparently asree on bringing veterans pensions uo to the level of the public service group this year. These ministers apparently fear the precedent that would be created by a standard-of-liv- ine escalation feature. They are reported worried they will come under pressure j to link other pensions, including I the old-age payments, to the standard of living. Mr. Knowles, also his party's pen- sions critic, has made it clear he will seek that in the future. It is reported that the minis The formula was the work of a committee of representatives of veterans organizations, the pension commission and the veterans affairs department. The idea was to fulfil a long standing belief of veterans ex- perts that the disability pen- sions should always be equal to that of unskilled public ser- vants. This is considered by many to be a matter of right, not privilege. Opposition members said they considered Mr. MacDonalds re- marks to mean that the govern- ment was committed to the for- mula for veterans though he did tell the com- mittee that the proposal needed cabinet that the Character trait GRANBY, Que. (CP) K slo- gans are any indication of a man's character, those posted in the bedroom of a man in this community show him to be en- dowed with some rather unusual ideas. Among these slogans One can read: "Cleanliness is the luxury of the poor. Be dirty." government was not committed to a standard-of-living formula for other pensions. There was no question in any- body's mind that Mr. MacDo- nald, a war veteran ant' a new MP appointed to the cabinet in November, liked the formula himself. Edmonton man gets JNDP post OTTAWA (CP) W. J. Dry- den, 38, former secretary of the Alberta New Democrat i c Parly, has been appointed as sistant to NDP federal secre- tary Clifford Scotton, it was announced today. A party statement said Mr. Drydsn, a native of Edmonton, will "concentrate on arrange- ments for the NDP federal convention to be held in Van- couver next July and on pre- parations for the next federal election campaign." ters feel the veterans pensions numbe should be linked to an increase i in the cost-of-living index as they, and the pension, j now are. This would mean a j RQB owo smaller annual increase. The Commons veterans af- fairs committee approved the new formula without debate Feb. 22.
