Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, February 17, 1972 THE LE1HBRIDGE HERAID 9 EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta cabinet Wednesday authorized payment of expenses of MLA's appointed to government committees. But a spokesman for Opposition Leader Harry Strom questioned whether the cabinet had the authority, without a authori tion of the legislature, to authorize payments to MLAs above their indemnity of which is for expenses.

The order-in-council authorizes payments of actual expenses for subsistence, accommodation and travel for those MLA's named to the five provincial committees which of exf been operating during the last several months. The Social Credit spokesman said the committees, containing Conservative members entirely, are in reality Conservative caucus study groups and as such are performing duties normally expected of MLAs for their regular sessional indemnity. The creation of all government MLA committees bypasses the legislature which would authorize committees with members from all parties, the spokesman "This is not open government, but government by order in-council."

Mr. Justice Marquis referred to a bill adopted by the Quebec national assembly in June, amending the jury law.

Jury selection has been post- poned until Feb. 21. Just before the judge gave his decision, defence lawyer Robert Lcmieux moved for a mistrial, claiming he was unable to see his client until just before the opening of the Court, of Queens Bench session.
