The legislation, introduced to the Commons Tuesday, consist; largely of modified versions of previous programs that oper- ated during a decade in which the cost of new homes doubled. There are revived measures designed to help low-income families get homes, to assist in sprucing up old neighborhoods and to pay for another round of research with the avowed aim of reducing housing costs. I The proposed amendments to the National Housing Act also continue the idea of establishing publicly-owned land cluding land for entirely new for co-oper- alive housing and money so j land developers and builders can experiment with low-cost housing. The new bill is a revised ver- sion of legislation introduced last year but never passed by Parliament. It is the product of research and studies carried out under three housing minis- ters during the last last five years.

In that time, the average cost of furnishing: and operating risen by about 25 per cent, the con- sumer price index shows. The price index for home ownership has risen by more than eight per cent in "the last year the same rste as food costs, which has prompted a special parlia- mentary inquiry. Price indexes show Ural since 1951, the base year for such cal- culations, the cost of home own- ership has risen 95 per cent, costs of new homes alone by more than 100 per cent, while mortgage interest rates have risen more than 125 per cent and home insurance 155 per cent. MORE RESEARCH ire new bill, introduced by I'rban Affairs Minister Ron Basford. provides for more re- search aimed at reducing hous- ing costs. The mirdster's announcement said the government would pro- vide money so real estate devel- opers and" the construction in- dustry won't have to bear the full financial risks. ard develipers have been unable to assume re- sponsibility for exceptional costs associated with ex- perimentation. Mr. Basford declined to tay h.v.v rnucti money the govern- ment will sperol on the various procra.Ts until he has talked with But he told the provinces at last week's housing conference that the government will spend altogether ?.i least SI billion a >e.ir on ail its pro- Weather and road report SUNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET l-'uicher Creek Grruvie Prairie Calgary.......
