Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 26, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 31 Sadat shuffles advisers CATLIKE BALANCE is an advantage for construction workers, even when one of the crew is a dog. Hardhalted canine by the name of Dillon, the mascot on a new bridge project at Scotia, N.Y., tries a little catwalking with Chris Morley. New competition bill provisions clarified OTTAWA (CP) Dis- tributors will not be forced to deal with businessmen who can get the kind of products they want elsewhere under a new competition bill, the Commons finance committee was told Wednesday. Jack Quinlan, chief of the fair trade practices commission was replying to questioning by Barnett Danson North Mr. Danson expressed con- cern about the effects of the bill on distribution systems set up by manufacturers or distributors. Such businesses might want their products handled only by outlets capable of providing servicing, maintaining inventories and stocking parts. But Mr. Quinlan made it clear that provisions of the bill apply not to brand names but to particular products. If a company was distributing the only product of its kind, the company might be forced to deal with buyers. But the buyers could not de- mand that the company deal with them if the product was available- from other com- panies. Mr. Quinlan said the aim of the provision is to enable a person to go into business. In the past, individuals had sometimes been shut out of the business of their choice because they could not obtain the products they wanted to sell. The provision is part of a government bill to protect consumers and encourage business competition. The Progressive Con- servatives moved to split the legislation into two bills to separate provisions directly affecting consumer protection .from provisions encouraging competition. Ron Atkey's St. Paul's) motion to split the bill was ruled out of order. Mr. Atkey said splitting'the bill would enable the Commons to give speedy passage to the consumer protection provisions. The parts affecting business dealings with business will take longer to put through Parliament, he said, because of numerous briefs and submissions expected to be brought before the committee. The bill, amending the Com- bines Investigation Act and other acts, would ban or re- strict a variety of pricing and selling techniques, including pyramid and referral selling. It also forbids misleading advertising and adds new protection on guarantees and warranties. Mr. Atkey said these are the elements he would like to speed through the Commons as important protection to consumers. What he wanted to split away into a separate bill are provisions to give the FTPC power to forbid suppliers from refusing to offer goods for sale. And he expressed the greatest concern about the powers given the FTPC under the bill to enforce these and other provisions. He said Parliament may not be finished with the elements of the bill until July and the other elements should not be held up that long. Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray said, however, that these are an essential part of the protection of consumers under the bill. They were aimed at ensuring business competition, which should benefit consumers. CAIRO (AP) President Anwar Sandat has retained his key financial adviser, as well as his ministers of war, interior and foreign affairs in the cabinet reshuffle announced Thursday night. The only major foreign policy adjustment appears to be the dropping of a minister of state for Libyan affairs and the creation of a minister of state for Sudanese affairs. In the 13 months since the last major cabinet change Libyan relations have deteriorated. Egypt charged Libya Thursday with an abortive attempt last week to overthrow Sadat. Also dropped from the new cabinet was deputy prime minister and minister of information and culture, Abdul Kader Hatem. He was named presidential adviser for national council affairs, a vaguely defined post related to production and services. Sadat retained the pre- miership, as expected, and ap- pointed Abdel Aziz Hegazy as first deputy prime minister, a new post. War Minister Ahmed Ismail also was named a deputy premier. TO PIONEER POLICY Hegazy will pioneer Egypt's "open door" economic policy, designed to attract hard cur- rency Western trade instead of barter trade with Eastern Europe and encourage foreign investment. He was one of four deputy prime ministers and is desig- nated to sit in for Sadat at cabinet meetings in the president's absence. The new minister of information is Ahmed Kamal Abul Magd, who served as minister of youth in the previous cabinet. Sadat said during the October war that Egypt was far behind Israel in getting Egypt's viewpoint aqross internationally. Twenty-six former cabinet ministers are retained in the new 36-man cabinet. It is Sa- dat's sixth cabinet since he came to power 42 months ago and is designed "to bridge the gap between yesterday and to- a statement said. Labor disputes commission under Tories Foreien policy By ELMO CIPRIETTI TORONTO (CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said yesterday that: if he becomes prime minister; he will establish a public in-; terest disputte commission tol deal with labor problems that: are disrupting the country. Speaking at a news confer- ence, he said the preseBt sys- tem puts the treasury board on the spot with inadequate scope to remedy the ravages of inflation. "The public interest disputes commission would head off disputes not only in the government sector but in all areas of public he said. The Liberal government had failed to deal with inflation and therefore was unable to cope with labor unrest. Mr. Stanfield criticized Prime Minister Trudeau's planned anti-profiteering bill because it is "clearly not an anti-inflationary measure." "The prime minister does not even pretend that it deals with he said. "The bill appears to be another attempt to seduce (New Democratic Party Leader) David Lewis." He said the NDP leader has so often threatened to bring down the Trudeau government that such action is likely if Mr. Lewis realizes the "cosmetic quality" of proposed legislation. MECHANIC.

He would then proceed with an immediate freeze on prices and incomes. The freeze would be "com- prehensive for a short term with selected controls extending one or two years." In the first stage, the total freeze would be accompanied by measures to alleviate the housing crisis in many Cana- dian cities. The federal sales tax on building materials would be removed; the federal government would undertake a broad program of increasing the supply of serviced land for housing; the price of housing would be included in the freeze. The strongest inflationary force in the country today is "the psychological expectation that prices will go up." and a price freeze is the best way of eliminating such a force, he said. Mr. Stanfield praised a recent decision by the Ontario government to impose a tax on land profits as having a "salutary effect in dealing a serious blow to inflation." But he said the recent in- crease in the prime lending rate of the Bank of Canada is having an unsettling effect on the economy. Concerning strikes in federal services, he said the present rash of disputes is not just a concidence but indicate "something substantially wrong with public services." U of L says 4call us collect' The University ot Lethbridge has implemented a trial policy of accepting collect telephone calls from prospective students anywhere in Alberta who require academic advice and registration information. University administrators view the approach as one means of making information about the university readily available to students throughout the province. The effectiveness of the policy will be reassessed at a future date. unaffected WASHINGTON (AP) State Secretary Henry Kissinger said today President Nixon's im- peachment problems might affect United States foreign policy over the long run, but that they have had no impact so far. Kissinger, at a news confer- ence, stressed particularly that the Soviets have not made "exorbitant demands" on the basis of any notion that the Nixon administration is weakened by the ongoing U.S. congressional impeachment process against the president. "Any president lives longer in history than in Kissinger said in defending U.S. foreign dissociating it from Nixon's Watergate troubles. The state secretary said that in negotiating nuclear weapons with Moscow and in all other foreign fields he will be guided by "our national interest" and not by any attempt to make the administration look good as the impeachment showdown draws near. Looking ahead to his Middle East trip starting this weekend, Kissinger would not forecast a disengagement between Israeli and Syrian forces in the Golan Heights but said he expects to make progress, He hinted that he would agree to an early shifting of the diplomatic centre to Geneva, as Moscow has demanded. At the same time, Kissinger said he will try to narrow dif- ferences on nuclear weapons positions when he sees Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko in Geneva on Monday. And Kissinger disputed a contention by Senator Henry Jackson (Dem. Wash.) that the U.S. is seeking a "quick fix" on a new nuclear agreement with the Soviet Union to ease domestic impeachment pressure on the president.
