Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, July 3, 1972------------------------------------------ Opposition MPs ready for week-long debate OTTAWA (CP) It's busi- ness as usual for Parliament Tuesday, officially because 01 the labor dispute at St. Law- ri'iiL-i! River ports, But opposi- tion MPs are digging in llii'ii heels for a possible week-long debate on other legislative mat- ters. The government is known to be anxious to pass other particularly the one to establish a new family-income security opposition MPs as- sume these bo debated while the labor dispute is under study. kept Liberal House Leader Allan MacEachen said Friday the government did not want to re- cess the House while the dispute continued. Government officials had said that Parliament could take a number of steps, including the passage of special back-to-work legislation, although Labor Min- ister Martin. O'Counell said he was planning no such bill at this replying to questions by reporters, said it may be right that action would he taken in five or six days. But he added that back-to-back leg- islation or the establishment of a government trusteeship were very poor options. THERE'S CONFUSION There was confusion around Parliament Hill during the weekend about what may hap- pen tliis week. And it appeared time. Mr. O'Connell, as though Liberal backbenchers were more in the dark than the opposition, which benefits from regular consultations with Mr. MacEachen. Conservative Leader Robert Slanfield had made plans to curtail some of his week-long visit to central Ontario, which had been arranged in expecta- tion of a summer recess. Other opposition MPs were busy changing their plans so they could be in Ottawa for a possi- ble week-long sifting. But many MPs, from both sides of the House, had commit- ted themselves to travel plans which cannot be changed. At- tendance is expected to be rela- tively low. The family-income security plan is expected to be given top priority if the House moves on to other legislation while await- ing action on the St. Lawrence work stoppage. The legislation was scheduled for passage Thursday, but was stalled after opposition MPs be- came annoyed at a stinging speech by Welfare Minister John Munro. The debate was halted when it became apparent [hat no progress would be made. MAY TRY AGAIN Sources say another attempt likely will be made to approve ;he legislation after a coohng-olf weekend. The government also would like to get Commons' approval RCMP assume control of town of ils foreign takeover legisla- lion, which became bogged under a series ol opposition amendments last week. But sources said this would be rein- traduced only it a continued sit- ting of Parliament could be jus- tified to keep a watching eye on the labor dispute. Tlie situation was far from clear when the House rose for the weekend. If the labor dis- pute is settled by Tuesday, or il immediate legislation is re- quired and passed, the House likely will rise without addi- tional debates. But if Parliament continues to keep an eye on the many opposition MPs suggest will could be some still debates ahead as the House, allegedly, fills in the lime. Council fate at stake YARMOUTH, N.S. (CP) RCMP look over police duties ii this town of late Sunday on the order of Attorney-Genera" Leonard Pace of Nova Scotia. The move gave town residents their first effective police prot ection in almost three days. The 10-member local force went on strike Friday evening to back contract demands. Until late Sunday, RCMP offi- cers had provided only emer- gency police work in lliis south western Nova Scotia town.

Cashless society long way off OTTAWA (CP) The cash- less society still is a long way off and may never come in the full sense of Hie term, says the June issue of the Lank of Can- ada Review. Despite the growing use of cheques, credit cards and com- puters, the amount of money in circulation continues to grow to meet tho daily needs of the pub- lic, the publication says. An article on banknotes and coins making up part of the so- called money supply says the use of cash has increased al- most as much as total consumer expenditure per capita iu recent years. The reasons given arc the continued use of cash for many small purchases, both of necess- ities and of small luxuries, ifd the insistence of Hie big food supermarket.'; on cash payment. Another factor is the large number of children and young people who want and use cash. At the beginning of the year, there was more than billion in Bank of Canada notes issued, of which S3.5 billion was in (lie hands of Hie general public. The remaining million was in the I ills of the chartered banks, available to meet hourly trans- action needs. Bank of Canada statistics showed another million cir- culating in coins. But these are relatively small amounts compared with the 534.5 billion of Canadian-dollar deposits in the chartered hank- ing system. It is this account- book money, handled by cheques for the most part, that makes up the bulk of the total money supply. The Bank of Canada Review, published by the Bank, said fig- ures on banknotes in circulation refer only lo banknotes that have hcsn issued by the Bank of Canada through its nine branch offices across the country. How mud] of it has been lost or de- stroyed, nobody knows.
