Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 - THi UTHBRIDOE HIRALD - .Thursday, February 25, 1971 Family allowances proposal shelved ST-***/ / ^ s / /JiV*""^ ' -JSSW LIVING AND THE DEAD - The bodies of wounded and dead South Vietnamese soldiers lie sprawled along Route 9 in Laos. The troops, taking part in the thrust into Laos, were ambushed by the North Vietnamese about 10 miles west of the Vietnamese border. Shouting in Commons OTTAWA (CP) - The government will not act on a white paper proposal that family allowances be eliminated for families earning more than $10,000 a year, Welfare Minister John Munro said Wednesday. He said in a Commons reply to Lincoln Alexander (PC-Hamilton West) that this proposal in the white paper on income security would result in certain injustices and that the government now is considering alternatives. He did not say what these alternatives are but added m a reply to Lome Nystrom (NDP -Yorkton-Melville) that there will, have to be some Income point where family allowances are cut off. Mr. Munro said in reply to Mr. Alexander's opening ques- tion on the subject that the white paper proposal was only a proposal. The government acknowledges it would result in injustices, he said, and invites suggestions on how to correct them. In reply to a further question by Mr. Alexander, thin minister said the government Is considering many alternatives and is waiting for more suggestions, including those from opposition parties. In reply to Mr. Nyf.trom's follow-up qviestion, Mr. Munro said the government is trying to devise a means whereby an Mi-come cutoff point for receipt of family allowances does not work hardships. Family allowances were begun in 1944 and are paid with- out any means test. Allowances are paid for children up to ags 16 and amount to $6 a month for each child up to age 10 and to $8 a month between ages 10 and 16. WINTER SLEEPER The ground hog or woodchuck generally curls up in his underground nest about September and hibernates until March. OTTAWA (CP) - Shouting broke out in the Commons Wednesday oyer who is responsible for lowering the Bank of Canada interest rate charged for infrequent loans to the chartered banks. After Finance Minister Edgar Benson told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield that Tuesday's reduction in the central bank's rate to 5Yt per cent from 5% was made because the governor of the bank and the government felt short-term interest rates should be lower, George Hees (PC-Prince (Edward-Hastings) asked who made the decision. Mr. Benson began his reply by referring to the highly-publicized 1961 dispute between then Conservative finance minister Donald Fleming and James Coyne, the Bank of Canada governor, which resulted in Mr. Coyne's resignation. Then he went on to suggest that Mr. Hees read the Bank Act, which he said places the ultimate responsibility with the minister .of finance. In that case, said the former Conservative trade minister, "why do you always claim there is no connection." Before being called to order, he said: "Why don't you tell the truth." The finance minister on a question of privilege said such an accusation is not permitted. WHO DECIDED? Donald Maclnnis (PC-Cape Breton-East Richmond) said the original question by Mr. Hees had still not been answered satisfactorily. Who, he asked, is responsible for the Bank of Canada's decision to lower its interest rates? Mr. Benson said it was the decision of the governor of the Bank. If the government had disagreed with the decision, the ultimate responsibility lies with the minister of finance. i Mr. Maclnnis said the minister had confused the issue and misled the House. Mr. Stanfield asked several questions about why the rate was lowered again only 10 days after another cut. Mr. Benson said that "we react to situations as they occur." While interest rates had been reduced very rapidly in the last year, Tuesday's reduction indicated that they had not gone down as far as they should have. Chartrand blasts judicial system MONTREAL (CP) - Labor leader Michel Chartrand lashed out Tuesday night at the Quebec judicial system, political leaders and a political system: Norwegian committee end oil tour OTTAWA (CP) - A Norwegian parliamentary committee flew 2,500 miles into snowbound Ottawa Wednesday night from Edmonton on the last stage of a tour studying the North American oil industry and laws governing it.

In his first public speech since his release on bail last week on charges laid under the War Measures Act, Chartrand told 1,500 people that Quebec would be a "iiee, independent, unex-ploited country" in 1975. The 53-year-old leader was addressing a "provisional government," organized by the Movement for the Defence of Quebec Political Prisoners, to mock the opening of the spring session of the Quebec national assembly in Quebec City.
