Orin E. Atkins, president of Ashland, also "said he under- stood my representations" and was aware of the "political sen- sitivity" of the deal. RAISED BY PC LEADER Conservative leader Rober Stanfield raised the subject asking the nature of Mr Greene's conversations with the two companies. Mr. Greene said he has urged both sides to see' that Canadian control is re- tained. When Mr. Stanfield asked whsther ho had any assurances of this, Mr. Greenr said he can "only operate under the law" but he was sure both sides are aware of government concern. Mr. Douglas asked whether ths government will step in and prevent any loss of Canadian control as it did when control of Denison Mines, a major Cana- dian uranium producer, was about to be sold to U.S. inter- ests last year. Mr. Greene said be is sure the positive nature of government action in the Dsnison case is flights to satisfy proposed Cana- Welfare rights urged "very much in tfe mind" of Ashland and Home. Mr. Greene told reporters out- side the House that Ashland was "trying very hard to move in a minority position." Throughout negotiations over the past weeks, both companies had "behaved as good Canadian corporate citizens should." Special legislation to deal with the case was not "beyond the realm of possibility." But Mr Greene said he thought Horn' could be kept Canadian with ne- gotiations, and without recoup- to government intervention. The minister rejected the suggestion from Mr. Stanfiek that the government's proposals in the white paper on taxation induced Home to seek a for 3im eign buyer.

MANY SCHOOLS Rhodesia has schools. TORONTO (CP) The Star ys a group of senior federa and provincial civil servants recommended a bill of ghts that would guarantee an [equate standard of living for e more than one million Cana- ans who depend on welfare. The n e w s p a p e r says the group's report was one of three scussed at a private meeting federal and provincial wel- are ministers in Ottawa last eek, but was not made public as were reports on welfare costs and ways to improve welfare dministration. The Star says, the report's ecommendations include: all levels of govern- lent stipulate that welfare is a right" for all needy Canadians. welfare administrators and social workers stop moral- ling, treating welfare recipi- ents as second-class citizens, and acting as if welfare allow- ances were being taken from dian transport commission reg- ulations. The regulations now are being circulated among air carrier! or their comments, a commis- sion official said today. They are to be announced later year. The commission has already ordered Wardair Canada Ltd. to post performance bonds cover- ing the money paid by its pas- sengers on overseas flights. The company has been told that if it does not meet this requirement by Feb. 15 it will have to end overseas flights. Wardair is appealing the deci- sion to Transport Minister Don Jamieson. Under current regulations, a non-scheduled air carrier is re- quired to place passenger fares in a bank trust account before a charter flight. When the first half of the trip has been com- jleted it is allowed to'withdraw per cent of the money. The neir own pockets. welfare allowances be sufficient to maintain a mini- mum- standard of living and should include enough for utili- ies such as telephones, which usually are considered luxuries welfare recipients. recipients be made aware of then- right to appeal :he decision of welfare workers to an "independent" board. recipients be allowed to make appointments by tele- phone for their periodic visits to the welfare office and should have the option of choosing their own counsellor. welfare officials lively support poor people's groups and stop viewing them as subversive. remainder can be removed after the return flight. A commission off icial has said Wardair was withdrawing pas- senger fares before the allotted time. Maxwell Ward, president of Wardair, has said his com- panly had an "excellent record" in maintaining the accounts. One purpose of the new regu- lation would be to eliminate the policing required by the current rule, a commission source said. The new regulation would re- quire the air carrier to obtain a performance bond from a bond- ing or insurance company or a guarantee from a Canadian bank or other financial institu- tion that it would repay the charterer if the carrier default- ed.______ Ginter winery lease okayed at Red Deer RED DEER (CP) City council has approved in prin- ciple terms for a 10-year lease on a former brewery to Ben Ginter, British Columbia indus- trialist, who intends to turn the building into a winery.
