No grain policy By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) Refusing to yield to opposition pressure, Justice Minister Otto Lang said Monday night the government will not announce its feed grains policy until after the July 24-26 western economic conference in Calgary. He told the Commons during a five-hour special debate on the price and supply of feed grams that the delay was de- cided in part because of a re- quest "in very strong lan- guage" from Allan Blakeney, New Democratic Party premier of Saskatchewan. The debate, prompted by an NDP motion that called for ur- gent government action, started at 8 p.m. EDT and went on un- til after 1 a.m., nearly three hours beyond the normal ad- journment time. However, the debate attracted the attention of relatively few MPs. Attendance in the final stages dropped to as low as nine members. There are 264 MPs. Mr. Lang, responsible for the wheat board, said the policy win not be made known until about the end of July. Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said the timing is also complicated by a pledge he made to discuss the issue with provincial agriculture ministers in Charlottetown July 24. COOL GREETING The delay in making the an- nouncement was greeted coolly by spokesmen for all three op- position parties. They said there is growing uncertainty over ieed grain supplies and prices and an urgent need for govern- ment action. Formation of the policy poses lough political problems for the ;overnment, which has already mposed export controls in re- sponse to similar United States action to protect domestic feed supplies and dampen price in- creases. On one hand, it faces the Mflspect of angering western farmers, who stand to gain from rising demand and prices. On the other, it has to cope with growing pressure from eastern livestock and poultry producers, who have seen the price of feed grains, the biggest cost factor in their industry, rise by up to 80 per cent in the last year. In the middle is the Canadian consumer, paying higher and higher meat prices at the super- market. Mr. Whelan said the policy will deal fairly with all regions from coast to coast. It would be more important to the future of Canadian agriculture than the current problem of feed grain supplies. The minister, criticized news media and unnamed critics for generating unnecessary hys- teria over the availability of feed grains. Repeating previous 'assur- ances, he said there is enough protein feed on hand to meet domestic feeds until the end of the crop year. But there could be some regional distribution problems and possibly the need to make, "some adjustments in composition and the level of protein formula feeds." He promised that the policy will provide orderly marketing but he left unclear whether feed Monday rain only a trace Only .01 of an inch of rain, accompanied by a trace of ban, fell on Lethbridge Mon- day evening. Mountain View reported .12 of an inch with Brooks re- porting nearly one-quarter of an of precipitation. At the Lsthbridge Airport there was only a trace of moisture. The Lethbridge weather of- fice reports showers and thundersbowers are expected during this afternoon and evening throughout parts of Southern Alberta. By Wednesday, sunny peri- ods will help the tempera- tures reach the 75 degree range with a drying and warming trend after Wed- nesday. The high today is expected to reach 70 to 75 degrees. i grains will be removed from wheat board control. The board has controlled feed grams since 1949 and western MPs; reacting to speculation that its authority may be less- ened, warned they will oppose any such move. Alf Gleave who prompted the spe- cial debate with a motion urg- ing the government to bring down its feed grains policy as soon as possible, said the entire agriculture industry will suffer if such a move is made. Even eastern producers, who would presumably stand to gain, most, have not. been pressing seriously for so radical a change, he said.

OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment hopes management and parties in the current rail- way contract dispute will ac- cept federal mediation offers aimed at offsetting a strike threat, Labor Minister John Munro told the Commons Mon- day. Negotiators for non-op- erating railway- employees and their employers now are study- ing conciliation reports, re- leased publicly Saturday. Union leaders have indicated they are preparing for rotating and selective strikes that prob- ably would begin July 24 or 25.

The company nominee on the board the lower figure while the union representative recommended the higher amount Conciliation Board Chairman Mr. Justice Craig Monroe of the British Columbia Supreme Court suggested a 17-per-cent wage increase. Mr. Munro told MPs Monday that any intervention by the federal government should not come until after the parties have studied the proposals and, in the case of the unions, noti- fied their membership. The minister said he did not think bis personal intervention now would help or would be welcomed. He told Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield that he hopad the parties would be JOHN MUNRO ready to accept mediation help in "a day or so." Prime Minister Trudeau, reply- ing to opposition questions from Mr. Stanfield and Duncan Beattie Moun- said Parliament would have a chance to discuss any strike situation that might arise before the House adjourns for the summer.
