Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, January 31, 1975 Irish report urges internment without trial be continued LONDON (Reuter) Internment without trial should continue temporarily in Northern Ireland because of the violence there, a long awaited report to the British government recommended Thursday. But it said a special status for prisoners convicted of politically motivated offences should be ended. These two key conclusions of a committee of inquiry into the emergency powers, head- ed by a former lord chancellor, Lord Gardiner, are certain to anger the out- lawed Irish Republican Army Little swinger The IRA made the abolition of internment without trial one of its conditions for a Jennifer Sommerstorfer, a grade five student at St. Thomas Separate school, uses a rather unorthodox style of delivery while bowling in Waterloo, Ont.

Phone on imported sources of energy. Electricity in particular is to be priced meaning to reduce demand and produce capital needed for future investment, the government said. British television viewers, meanwhile, have been told the cost of watching television aimed at reducing the balance of payments deficit, estimated at million for 1974. The document forecasts an average growth rate of three per cent and a virtual stand- still in the standard of living until 1979. The document said increas- ed production will be the main weapon against the payments deficit. New investment was prom- ised in industry, agriculture and manpower training, while subsidies to non-profitable na- tionalized industries, such as the railways and some public utilities, will be reduced by more than half. The government pledged to protect living standards for el- derly pensioners and the dis- abled. It expects an annual increase in living standards of no more than between 0.4 to 1.7 per cent. While the report said Brit- ain's dependence on imported oil should abate by 1979, gov- ernment critics have express- ed doubt that original timetables for North Sea oil production will be met. They suggest self-sufficiency in oil will not come until the early 1980s. Goy't sidestepped laws ceasefire in lhe campaign of violence against British rule in Northern Ireland. There are some 500 men detained there in this way, mostly republicans. Any move to change the "special category" status for imprisoned IRA men and with it such privileges as the wearing of their own clothes instead of prison un- iforms might result in widespread troubles, observers believe. DELAY EXPECTED The British secretary of state for Northern Ireland, Merlyn Rees, is reported to have had the report before him since last month. Because of fears about the IRA reac- tion and the delicacy of current attempts to get some kind of understanding with the guerrillas to secure a peace, the British government is ex- pected to delay action on the report for some weeks. A decision on it will be taken in the light of the prevailing level of violence and the progress of a genuine and sustained cessation of violence, said informed British sources. Rees has promised to phase out intern- ment if IRA violence stops. The committee of seven came out against internment without trial as a long term policy and said it would like to have said the time had come for its abolition. "But the present level of violence, and the difficulty of predicting events even a few months ahead, make it im- possible for us to put forward a precise recommendation on the it said. "We think that this grave decision can only be made by the government." ACTED LEGITIMATELY The committee found that the British government has .acted legitimately, and con- sistently with the terms of the European convention for the restricting certain fundamen- tal liberties in Northern Ireland. But the. continued existence of emergency powers should be limited both in scope and duration and a solution to Northern Ireland's problem worked out in political terms, the report said. The committee suggested that the political solution should include further measures to promote social justice between classes and communities. The current troubles in Northern Ireland, where there are one million Protestants and Catholics, result from civil rights campaigns and sectarian strife that started in 1369.

The premier said he made it clear when he came to office the New Democratic Party government would not ac- cumulate great surpluses "to the peril of programs" but added increased government spending does not preclude the possibility of a budget sur- plus this year.
