The assembly passed a reso- lution asking the federal gov- ernment to disolve tlx? one- man Barlwr com mission wliich is investigating Indian claims. The 50 delegates from provin- cial and territorial Indian or- ganizations said the commis- sion's terms of reference are tew restricted. They also suid Indians should have a say in establishing an alternate method of dealing with their territorial claims. Although Dr. Lloyd Barber, a University of Saskatchewan vice-president, appointed in to study claims, many Indian groups have revised to co-operate and nre doing liiea own research. Or. Barber has no power to settle claims but can subpoena records and witnesses. "The very concept of Indian control of Indian research" is at stake, said brotherhood pres- cient George Manuel. "No one, no matter how they protest object, is in the position to ask our questions for us." Delegates complained that Dr. Barber and his investiga- tors have easy access to Impor- tant documents while the In- dians often are left scrambling with few funds from Ottawa. The first two days of the as- sembly were open to govern- ment observers and the public but delegates closed the Thurs- Police suid Ihe men were paid in hills marked with a substance which .slicks to tho hands and c'un bo seen under ordinary light.

Mr. Manuel explained the brotherhood has not finishe< development Its strategy in the battle to maintain these rights and did not want debate ham ncred by outside observers. The need for Indians to be consulted hi decisions affecting them was a major theme In three days of often emotiona' discussion.

For several days private air- craft hart been ferrying small amounts of essential material.1; to tlie islands. A statement from the govern- ment's Scottish office said the military airlift was necessary "to prevent hardship lo the islanders as it i.s clear that pven with non-stop work by air firms it would not be possible to transport sufficient sup- plies." PlaJis also were being dis- cussed for moving supplies to the Hebrides islands off Scot- land's west coast. A peace-seeking committee representing port unions and employers was meeting today to consider whether plans it has made for safeguarding long- shoremen's jobs are wel] enough advanced to present to the strikers.

At the same time, authorities were urgently seeking exten- sion of Amln's 90-day deadline for the departure of Asians. Besides the Asians In Uganda who have or are eli- gible for British passports, ap- proximately others with non-British passports have been ordered by Amin to leave, the British foreign office estimated. Officials said the government accepted responsibility for the British Asians in East Africa since they were offered British citizenship when Uganda, Kenya ami Tanzania became independent. But Britain has tried to con- trol the flow of these immi- grants, now limited to vouchers for heads of household a year. Including their depend ents, some East African Asiatus are allowed to enter Britain amvially. SOME liliCKE RULES Occasionally some Asians have tried to jump the waiting list and enter Britain withoul They have shut- tled back and forth on airlines until some country agreed to take them. But generally, until tho three African coun- ;rics ave avoided moves to pressure mass exodus of Asians. Informed sources said plans for accepting the new immi- grants were drawn up by the British ministers after Amin's talks with British High Com- missioner Richard Slater on Wednesday in Kampala, capital of the African nation. Paper on Indians shelved by govt, OTTAWA CCP) Social Credit Mi's and members ol the party's Quebec executive ended a tlircc-day policy meet- ing Thursday and released ft policy platform for tho next federal election. Party President Gilbert Ron- deau, MP for Stafford, naitl the key element ol the platform ia n social security program tluil would provide a tax ex- emption for married couplea and lor single taxpayers. Current exemptions are for couples and for sin- gles. Tlio program, first pub- lished separately last May, would also provide outright grant security annually for every Canadian adult and (or every child annually. Mr. liordcau said the pro- gram, including over provl stons, would cost billion five cents more" Ilien Iho current combined costs of pensions, unemploy- ment insurance and welfare payments. The policy platform soys Social Credit government wouli he willing to administer such a program through Hie provinces which now are authorized bj the constitution to make many of tho payments included in tin party's program. On foreign ownership, Mr Rondeau told reporters that by making Interest-free loan available from the Bank Canada, Canadians could pro vide all necessary Inveslmen without foreign funds. SC NOT REGIONAL Mr. Rondeau, whose party' 13 MPs all come from Qiie aid Social Credit Is "surely not regional party anymore." He said eight candidates havi cen nominated in Saskatche- an, six in Alborln, six In Brit- sh Columbia, three In Mani- oha and two in Ontario. The arty plans to contest most of :ic 74 Quebec seals and an un- Isclosed number ill tho Allan- ic region. They will hold a regional netting in Monclon Aug. 27, ;atd. Mr. Rondeau said the plat- orm calls for a federal election every four years "so wo con stop playing around with one prime minister who now has the choice of calling m election anytime within five 'ears o( the previous election. He said Prime, Minister Tnidcau will try to mako tha campaign issue billngualism. ECONOMY IS ISSUE "We are not going to fall Into his trap." The real Issue would lie tho welfare and high taxes. The policy platform says a Social Credit government would promote the family farm, pro- tect private enterprise and as- sure producers a reasonable in- come. By reducing Inflation with lower taxes and interest-free loans, it would expand foreign trade with lower prices for Ca- nadian goods. Lagging consumer spending would IM solved by tho social security program and reduced prices. "A modern and scientific monetary system" would ho adopted which would allow nei- ther infialion nor deflation.
