D. G. Crosby, chief of the de- partment's resource adminis- tration division, told the Com- mons natural me mittee Tuesday that deep drilling by' companies holding exploration permits on the sheU must first be cleared with fed- eral authorities. No permission was given without careful ex- amination. Mr. Crosby said that since 1967, 14 deep boles have been drilled ctf the West Coast and seven off the East Coast. So far, none has resulted in producing wells. He toH the committee the de- partment has refused permis- sion to drill in the Boundary Bay area south of Vancouver, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence near the French islands of SI. Pierre and Miquelon and in the Bay Fundy. Further drilling is expected this year, however, following completion of a off shore drilling rig in Halifax, be In an interview later, Mr Crosby said an oil company wishing to drill met first sub- mit a report to the government detailing the equipment to be used, wodiiont and the prog- nosis for the operation. The company must also file frequent report! oo progrea of the oper- ation. No Decrease In Work Week WASHINGTON (Fteutm) Americans (till will work al- most 38 hours a week in 1980, says a new forecast by the U.S. bureau of labor statistics. Dealing a blow to the popular concept mat the average work week is certain to shrink rap- idly under the impact of the computer age, the government agency predicted an annual re- duction of only 0.1 per cent From the 38.1 hours a week worked in 1968, the agency sail! the work week would drop to only 37.8 by 1980 for non-farm workers. A bureau official, in explain ing this conservative view of the future, said the bureau is con- vinced that Americans mainly tend to favor increased income rather than increased leisure.
