That applies to and semi-fabricated, products. The com m MOB s i i d the ilcan decision was taken follow- ing meetings with the commis- ao. U.S. producers have an- nounced price increases re- cently and Alcaa has raised its prices outside the country. "b the course of discussions with representatives of Akan, rasiderauuu was given to the mpact which price increases or domestic sales of ingot and semi-fabrkaLed would lave on the Canadian program of reducing the number and sue price the com- mission announcement said. "The commission strongly ex- pressed the opinion that higher I 0 ra e S t i C aluminum prices would be harmful to the ra- tional program of price re- straint and would therefore cot je opportune."
