He said Ihe crushing plant at Altona. Man., suffers from ati unjustifiable freight rate disad- vantage.

During Ihe worst of the Inter- vening ycari, debts owed lo international monetary authorities rose to Ihe sterling equivalent of SS.72 billion. "II is a lovely feeling" was lo- day'a comment by a govern- ment spokesman who during the eight years of indebtedness has had the unenviable task of ex- plaining why it had been neces- sary to continually borrow from Ihe IMF and other mone- tary authorities to keep Brit- ain's international balance sheet solvent. It was International pressure on sterling in the z period when many investors had no faith in its future profitabil- ity- which touched on Britain's need lo borrow from the IMF. liy December, 1968, these short and medium-term borrowings had reached 58.82 billion. Then an improvement In Brit- a i ri 's international financial standing enabled a start lo be made lo repay some oi these debts. By August of last year, S7.ll billion had been paid off, leaving only about SI.2 billion owing. Uy Thursday this had been re- duced to SI.- million. With the Bank of England now having its biggest-cvcr stockpile of gold and dollars- it amoiinlcd to billion at the last government ould have had no difficulty in gelling rid of (lie remaining debt, but because of the recent dollar crisis, the IMF did not want it settled in U.S. dollars. Uuring lalks in Washington Wednesday, eight tria. Belgium, Canada. France, West Germany, Ilaly, .laran and the- Netherlands -worked out R formula to enable Britain to settle the debt by selling U.S. dollars to the eight countries in exchange for their own cur- rency, which was then used lo I pay off the IMF debt business by eastern compeli. I lion fostered by freight rato j disparities. Illustrating his argument, Mr. Evans set outbound rail trans- porlation costs on rapcseeti pro- ducts equivalent to 7.7 per cent i of the total value of sales for planls such as those nt Altona. That costs us al least 48 pc: i cent higher than cosis accru- ing to transporting rapesced, he said lie said the cost of moving rapeseed from Saskatchewan It Mintreal is 67.5 cents a hun- dred pounds compared will 121.4 ccnls a hundred pounds to move the scetls through Ihe Al lona plant to Montreal as moa! arid oil. lie said transportation costs can be reduced Uy using large tanker cars. However, he cited as disadvantages freight char ges resulting from out-ot-lin haul charges In bringing seed Trim country elevators lo th plants and extra charges when the seed slops in transit at tin plants. "Efforts to foster the growtl of the industry in Ihe Prairie will not be successful as long as the railroads arc inadvert- ently allowed to determine a KeoRt'anlneal location of indus- try in Mr. Evans said.
