Hand Bath Cloth 50' MPs setting up constituency offices OTTAWA (CP) Ufe may become a little less hectic for many MPs' wives who act as unofficial secretaries at home while their partners are in the capital. More than 90 MPs already have established, or are estab- lishing, staffed offices in their ridings. Money for this was contained in the government's supplementary spending estimates approved by the Commons Dec. 10. Members are allowed a month for staff and another for office rental. The idea is to make MPs more accessible to their con- stituents. A man having prob- lems with the Unemployment Insurance Commission (UIC) will be able to go to the office and explain his difficulties directly to the MP or his secretary. In the past, the man would have had to write a letter, telephone the MP's wife, or take a chance on finding him at home during a weekend. If all 264 MPs use the new system, the bill will be about million a year. Many members say this is a small price for bringing government closer to the people Regulations for the spending were drafted by representatives of all political parties. MOST RENT OWN SPACE A member can have the 400-a-year office allowance or take free space in a federal building. Those taking outside quarters must furnish, equip and maintain an office with the Commons Clerk Alistair Fraser says most MPs establishing riding offices are not chosing federal buildings. This likely is because government buildings close on weekends, when MPs are most available. None of the money is touched by the MPs. All statements are paid by the House of Commons. The regulations are quite flexible because of the huge differences in constituencies. Members may open more than one office or hire more than one worker, but the government will pay only a year total for office and staff. If a member wants to hire five workers at a year, that's up to him. Those who overspend must make up the difference from their own pockets. Some members in far-flung ridings are considering renting mobile homes. Members are not allowed to rent from spouses or children or from companies they are associated with. The same rule applies to hiring staff. Some members wanted to extend the rule to other relatives, but there was difficulty in deciding where to draw the line. v MPs who decide not to open riding offices do not receive any allowance. One source says some are not setting up offices because their work would be much increased. Riding offices are nothing new to some MPs. Mr. Fraser says he has been surprised at the number already paying for offices from their own funds. Members are not allowed to sign office leases lasting more than a year and each must contain a three-month cancellation clause. Long- term leases might leave the government paying for empty offices after an election. Canada permits foreign fleets to get jump MONTREAL (CP) A fish- eries expert says Canadian fishermen are being crippled by the country's bad habit of letting foreign Jleets develop its Atlantic fisheries and then scuttling in to pick up the leftovers "The consequences have been disastrous, "said Mike Shepard, international fisheries director for the environment department in Ottawa. He was speaking Tuesday at the start of a threeday government- industry conference on utilization of Atlantic fishery resources "Large foreign fleets have moved from one stock to an- other, skimming off the cream and moving to new stocks as catch-per-unit effort falls to an unprofitable level. In a number of cases, such as haddock, Canadian small-boat fishermen have shared these fisheries with the foreigners and now are left with an empty plate, ill-equipped to move to other Dr. Shepard told nearly 200 delegates. PROBLEMS CREATED He said the far-flung oper- ations of foreign fleets create problems for the Canadian in- dustry even when they are in- volved in a species not of direct interest to Canada. "Huge foreign factory ship operations in the Bering Sea and in the Gulf of Alaska, di- rected initially toward flounders and more recently toward Alaska pollock, have taken very small percentages of halibut. "But small percentages of big totals add up and the by- catch of halibut in these fisheries has been labelled as a major contributing reason for declines in the halibut stocks in the eastern North Pacific." He said the efficiency of for- eign fleets often catches Canadian fishermen unprepared, with the result that new stocks are depleted almost before Canadian nets are in the water. But Dr. Shepard said contin- uing negotiations' through such organizations as the International Commission for Northwestern Atlantic Fisheries (ICNAF) finally are starting to pay off in having the rights of coastal states recognized. A major concession to coastal states like Canada came at Copenhagen in June, 1972, when the 16 ICNAF countries agreed that coastal states should be allowed 10 per cent of the catch, before the rest is divided between the coastal state and the other nations fishing its waters. "For the first Dr Shepard said, "the runaway expansion in the international fishery had been effectively stopped Last year, Canada's share of certain species was increased, further brightening the picture for Atlantic fishermen. Leitch's resignation demanded EDMONTON (CP) The Liberal candidate for Calgary Foothills in the last provincial byelection said Tuesday night Attorney General MervLeitch should resign because he has obstructed justice by preventing a complete public investigation of the Alberta Housing Corporation. Chris Harder said Mr Leitch and Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell have contributed to a cover-up of misdeeds by the crown corporation in Fort McMurray and other parts of the province. Mr. Harder told a Pembina Liberal Constituency Association meeting he has learned the department of national revenue is investigating all people named in a police report on the housing corporation. When teacher's away With teachers gone, principal Ian McHaffie instructs 15-year-old Sandra Barkwell in gymnastics in Aurora, Ont., about 30 miles north of Toronto. More than 600 York region secondary school teachers resigned recently in an attempt to gain more say in class size. Flexibility seen key in record U.S. budget WASHINGTON (CP) Flexibility, balance and contingency plans to fight inflation and keep down unemployment are seen by observers, as the key ele- ments in President Nixon's record calls for spending more than billion in the financial year beginning next July 1. Analysts see these factors partly as a conciliatory gesture toward a Congress still smarting from the austerity, ceilings and impoundment of funds which BIG BROTHERS ASSOCIATION LETHBRIDQE Mid DISTRICT ANNUAL MEETING TONIGHT WEDNESDAY, FEB. 6, 1974 8 p.m ST. MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL AUDITORIUM Report of Work 1973 Etocttont of Officm Outline of Plans 1974 GUEST SPEAKERS: JOE RYDER FLINT, MICHIGAN Representative Central Region BIG BROTHERS' of America BUD HERMAN -VANCOUVER, B.C. Founding Member BIG BROTHERS of Canada symbolized the last federal budget However, the qeustion asked by financial experts is whether the 1974-75 budget is designed to meet what they see as growing problems of falling demand and rising to continue the battle against last year's problems of excess demand. Administrative spokesmen say the flexibility built into the new budget will give them greater scope in the fight to check growing unemployment through liberalized unemploy- ment insurance, easing of monetary policy and a speed- up in government spending. Observers agree that the fight against rising unemployment may be even more vital than the battle against inflation, but they question whether the budget as presented provides adequate stimulus for an economy threatened by recession There is also the question of how the newly articulated flexibility would be exercised. Analysts see at least some dis- agreement among adminis- tration officials on that point REJECTS TAX CUTS Originally, there were calls for some form of tax cuts, but Treasury Secretary George Shultz says such moves should be a last resort because the U.S. should be -ireful "about eroding our federal income." Experts who look to the past, advocate caution in the adopting of long-range corrective measures such as defence spending that would commit the U.S. to programs which might stretch far into the future and might not be the answer to problems developing years hence. They stress that fiscal and monetary policy operates with time-lags of six months or more. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE Don't Let It Fool You!
