Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 18, 1974 U.S. may have to back down on Mideast atomic plants offer New York Times Service WASHINGTON Reser- vations expressed by Israel are raising serious doubts in administration circles that the United States will be able to carry through with its offer to provide Egypt and Israel with large atomic power plants. Israel has communicated to the United States its dis- interest in receiving an atomic power plant from the United States at this time, state department officials said. The Israeli position was presented by Foreign Minister Yigal Allon during his dis- cussions here last week with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The official Israel explana- tion was that it was not prepared to make the relatively large commitment involved in building the atomic power plant. But on the basis of earlier discussions, state department officials suspect that the un- derlying reason was the Israeli reservation about plac- ing all of its atomic facilities including the Dimona reac- tor that is capable of produc- ing plutonium for weapons under international inspec- tion. In addition to stringent American safeguards, the United States had proposed that each nation agree to place the nuclear power plants and all future atomic facilities under inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The Egyptian position was that since Egypt had no reac- tors capable of producing enough plutonium for weapons, it would be dis-. criminatory to place all her future plants under inter- national inspection while Israel retained an uninspected reactor able to make enough plutonium for a few atomic weapons a year. Israel was said to have made clear that it would raise no objections to the sale of an American atomic power plant to Egypt. With Israel out of the arrangement, however, state department officials are uncertain that Egypt would still want a reactor from the United States or that such a sale would be approved by Congress. Some administration of- ficials suspect that Israel's motive in withdrawing its interest was in effect to veto the sale of an American reac- tor to Egypt. Ever since the offer was first made by former presi- dent Nixon last June, the proposed sale of reactors to the two Middle East nations, and in particular to Egypt, has run into unexpectedly intense congressional criticism. This criticism could be expected to increase if it was no longer a parallel arrangement between the two nations but a sale only to Egypt. The next move, according to state department officials, is up to Egypt, which was in- formed of the Israeli position late last week. The Egyptians, who were reported by officials to have been "furious" at the Israeli reaction, must now decide whether they still want an American reactor. And, if so, whether they are willing to accept the inspection terms laid down by the United States. House mortgage subsidies limited OTTAWA (CP) A promis- ed new program to subsidize mortgages will be limited to first time buyers of newly built homes. A spokesman for Urban Af- fairs Minister Barney Danson said full details of the program, announced last week, will be available when the bill is presented to Parliament, probably Thur- sday. But the mortgage subsidies of up to a month will be available only to persons purchasing their first home after the bill becomes law. The home mortgaged must be a new one, a Danson aide said in an interview, elaborating on the minister's an- nouncement. The amount of the subsidy will depend on a wide range of factors such as the home buyer's income, the size of his family, and regional variations in the costs of land, construction and property tax- es. In low-cost regions, people with incomes between and would be eligible for the subsidies. But in higher cost areas, such as Toronto, families with in- comes as high as year could be eligible for the subsidies, he said. He said the figures were rough estimates. The idea is to keep monthly mortgage payments to between 22 and 25 per cent of a person's income, the spokesman said. The rent subsidies would be in the form of extensions to the previously-announced million limited-dividend hous- ing program. Under the program, an- nounced in September, the government, through Central Mortgage and Housing Cor- poration (CMHC) subsidizes the mortgage cost of multiple- unit rental housing to an effec- tive rate of eight per cent. In return, the developer agrees with CMHC to fix rent- als of the accommodations for 15 years. The spokesman said the new mortgage subsidy plan for home owners augments the million Assisted Home Ownership Plan which provides mortgage money to low-and middle- income home-buyers directly from government funds. "We cannot afford the capital that's in he said. He added that he expected the new plan would encourage the construction of to more houses in 1975. He said Mr. Danson was planning to speak with On- tario Housing Minister Donald Irvine on the new programs. Mr. Irvine said last Thursday he wanted to get a full ex- planation of the program. Mr. Irvine said he feared the federal plan would mean more money for landlords. The spokesman said the government expects to issue the first checks in January for its grant program for first-time home buyers The program is retroactive to Nov. 1.

Payments deficit sinks OTTAWA (CP) Canada's payments deficit sank to a record million during the third quarter, largely reflecting a continuing deterioration in merchandise trade between Canada and other countries. Statistics Canada reported Monday the deficit is more than twice the million figure recorded for the second quarter of 1974. The increased deficit was almost entirely accounted for by the drop of more than million in the merchandise trade surplus to million at the end of the quarter.
