At least a half-dozen cabinet ministers and a long queue of government and opposition MPs have been polishing their politi- cal cliches and oratorial har- poons for a debate scheduled to end a week from. Tuesday. As if eight regular parliamen- tary days weren't enough for a subjects barred debate on government policies, tlie hours for talk ac-e extended. Tin-one speech sittings start daily except Wednesday at II a.m. EST instead of the usual 2 p.m., adding two hours of de- bate time most days. DETAILS EXPECTED In the course of the debale, cabint ministers will fill in de- tails of new government legisla- tive programs outlined skelchUy in the tlirone speech. Those programs include new measures to help low income Canadians buy homes, a neigh- Ijorhood improvement plan for cities, new methods of raising money for housing, federal legal aid, compensation for victims of crimes, increased benefits for fanners and fishermen, equality for women, family welfare, new national parks in the north and a program to preserve Cana- dians. The government Is expected to publish Wednesday its spend- ing estimates for the financial year starting April 1 which will provide further clues to the ex- tent of its plans. But l.ho burden of the long debale is sure lo feature echoes of the lead given Friday by the party leaders. Prime Minister Trudeau then held up his administration's record since its 1S63 election as or.e of solid accomplishment and he challenged political op- ponents to spell out how they would have done differently. .surprisingly.
