Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-11,Lethbridge, Alberta Tariff cuts stay beyond expiry date OTTAWA (CP) - Tariff reductions Imposed last February to cool inflation will be extended only four (iKHiths beyond their scheduled expiry Feb. 20, Finance Minister Jdin Turner told the Com-nions Thursday. Tariffs (HI some items—including a range of canned and fresh fruits, vegetables and juices—will revert to their former higher rates Feb. 20, he said in a notice to the House. 1116 reductions, introduced in a budget last February 19, were intended to cut the cost of importing a variety of foodstuffs, drugs, household articles and toys. They affected about |1,4 billion worth of imports based on 1972 trade fimres. The reductions themsHves were valued at about f70 million. Mr. Turner said the old rates of duty will be restored after June 30 to give Canada a bargaining lever in negotiations on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade which open next summer. But eliminatiaii of the cuts may not matter much to consumers. A report by the consumer affairs department last October concluded that “few price reductions were directly attributable’” to the tariff reductions. That report said more benefits were gained from elimination of sales and excise taxes on children’s clothing, footwear, confectionery and cosmetics. Mr. Turner’s notice said the tariff reductions on sugar will remain in place until June 30, 1976. Reductions ending next month involve imports worth about $200 milliwi, the finance department said. Those include canned apricots, laches, pears and mixed ruits, fresh asparagus^ Brussels sprouts, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet cherries, pears, and strawberries, citrus fruit juices and prepared mixtures of meat, fish and vegetables. Higher tariffs will also be restored on industrial press-on tires and lighting ballasts. Hie reductions, aimed at depressing price increases, were quickly opposed by farm groups who complained they would mean increased competition. The government restored the higher tariffs on cattle and beef last September after being pressed by western cattlemen. Mr. Turner said in his budget speech last February that the reductions would be monitored to ensure they did not hurt production or employment in Canada. Many of the items affected—citrus, for example—are not produced in Canada.    ' The minister said Thursday the government’s review “showed that the tariff reductions, coupled with the other .tax cuts announced last February, had helped to moderate increases in consumer prices.” Statistics Canada reported Thursday that consumer prices rose 9.1 per cent to December from December, 1972—the highest rate since 1951.

But having no means of getting Jodie-Lynn downtown Since Edmonton’s transit strike began Nov. 29, Linda's employer allows the little girl to spend her day at his plant. Air passengers may get break “.The commercial air transport business—as distinct from private flying—uses only a small part of the total oil energy in all its forms. Any savings we can make whether done by government fiat or on our own are not going to affect the total very much. Nevertheless, because 1 think politics demands that everyone plays his part, we are being restricted. Highway 6, Pincher Creek to Waterton is mostly bare and dry with some sections of ice.

MONTREAL (CP) - The global fuel shortage may rescue airline passengers from those long waits at the end of runways, an air authority indicated Thursday. Dr. R. R. (Dick). Shaw, assistant director-general, technical, of the International Air Transport Association (lATA), told a reporter about 20 recommendations have been prepared by which airlines might cut fuel consumption “as much as 10 per cent.” These include a system of “gate hold” under which aircraft would await assurance from air traffic control of a clear runway before starting engines and taxiing out for takeoff. Vast quantities of fuel have been burned in the past by queues of aircraft waiting perhaps an hour or more for takeoff clearance, particularly at crowded United States airports. Dr. Shaw also reported that representatives of major airlines, aircraft manufacturers and oil companies will meet in London next Wednesday to reexamine jet fuel specifications. “Our specifications for jet fuel have been very precise and tight,” said the Australian-born engineer and Rhodes Scholar. “Now we are asking ourselves if we need be quite so tough. Obviously if we ease the specifications it makes it easier for refineries to produce more of the product.” Dr. Shaw contended that airlines use much less of the total oil supply than is commonly believed — approximately three or four per cent in Europe and Co-operation and Development. Lougheed seeks energy respect Better Food The restrictions are on the order of 10 to 20 per cent in various countries served by the 112 member airlines of lATA, whose function is to promote safe, regular and economical air transport and foster co-operation among airlines. Knut Hammarskjöld, lATA director-general, now is travelling away from headquarters here, striving to ensure no discrimination as between oil supplies to various airlines. “What we are doing has a number of prongs and that is the first one,” said Dr. Shaw. “We are arguing with some success that all airlines should be treated equally... “The second one is to try to make a case for the highest possible allocation of fuel to airlines, arguing that airlines are a vital part of the world economy ... We are trying with not so much success to get our allocations raised." In the technical field, lATA developed recommendations for “the airlines to consider and implement on how to fly ai planes to use less fuel per mile.” The most obvious one for pilots—as for car drivers—is to reduce speed, except the reduction is 50 miles an hour in the case of jet pilots. vay 1, Trans Canada, west to Calgary and Banff is mostly bare with some blowing snow. Banff to Golden is mostly hare with occasional slippery sections. Golden to Revelstoke is mostly bar«, plowing and sanding on slippery sections.

CALGARY (CP)--Premier Peter Lougheed said Thursday night the federal government should “respect the spirit of confederation” at the first ministers meeting on energy in Ottawa later this montii. "I can't say what will happen aii the energy conference other than to say our views are well known in that we object to federal intrusion into the natural resources fiekl,” he told a constiluencv meeting. He repeated Alberta’s basic stand on energy: fair value for its resources, conservation for the future, first priority for Albertans, continued private enterprise in the industry, more secondary industry in Alberta, and due regard for the environmijnt. 'It’s really up to the federal government to decide whether to respect the provincial ownership of our resources,” Mr Lougheed said, adding that the provinces are guaranteed control of their natural resources by the British North America Act. j CENTRE VILLAGE m AND MARTENS IGA COALDALE VALU^ EFFECTIVE FRIDAY and SATURDAY JM. 11 and 12 PrieM CflMtiv* Until Clo«lit9 Saturday, Jan. 12th WartacnwttNifieht to limit quantltlw.
