The government should have the pov.'cr to summon company r e p r e sentativcs and request proof that the increases are ne- cessary, he told a service club here. Mr. Dickie criticized the gov- ernment for placing proposed compulsory automobile insur- ance legislation under the guid- ance of Provincial Secretary Ambrose Holowach who is "un- familiar with the complexities of automobile insurance." Highways and Transport Minister Gordon Taylor is the usual government spokesman on such questions, said Mr. Dickie, and he interpreted the change as a lack of confidence in the highways minister.
