Mr. Basford said at a news conference that changes in Na- tional Housing Act (NHA) regulations will permit the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) to buy land and lease it to co-operative and non-profit housing groups. He also promised that if no agreement is reached on estab- lishing a national home warranty council embracing all housing, the government will establish its own policy by the end of the year for housing financed under federal legisla- tion. In addition, the minister said the expanded Assisted Home Ownership Program (AHOP) announced last week will be supplied with an additional million in federal funds this year. The Liberal housing policy is not intended to increase over- all housing production this year, he said. The main purpose was to rearrange the housing mix so that more iow-and moderately priced housing was available on the market. He said he expects new housing starts this year at last year's record level of or slightly below. Currently, the non-profit program provides for 100-per- cent financing with a 10-per-cent forgiveness grant, the minister said. The new rules, effective immediately, would allow CMHC to buv land and lease it to non-profit groups for a 50-year term at a preferred rate with renewal options. The land-purchase plan would be in place ol the 10-per-cent grant, he said. Housing groups could choose which method would offer the best way to reduce rents. Mr. Basford said the national home warranty plan proposed in March will take effect Jan. 1 next year, even if it applies only to housing financed under federal lending laws. Talks already were under way with provincial govern- ments, consumers, builders and lenders to establish an inde- pendent national home warranty council to administer the consumer protection plan. If the government had to act alone it would set up its own council including consumer, builder and lender representatives. May walk again Edgar Reiprich, his mother Stephanie and nephew Paralysed youth returns TORONTO (CP) Edgar Reiprich returned here Monday after five months in the Soviet Union where he underwent a complex spine operation which may enable him eventually to walk again. The 17-year-o'ld was paralysed from the waist down in motorcycle accident in 1971. He went to Russia after Canadian doctors told him he would not be able to walk again. His sister. Renay. burst into tears and rushed to kiss him as Edgar was wheeled through customs at Toronto International Airport. Also on hand were his lather, a brother-in-law and a 14-month-old nephew. Edgar and his mother. Stephanie. left for Leningrad Jan. 22 with the youth travelling on a stretcher. He said in an interview Monday he feels much better. His mother noted he has gained 15 pounds, mainly be- cause she had cooked for him in hospital. Edgar underwent a 2'2-hour operation in Leningrad March 5 to remove damaged sections of his vertebrae, easing pressure on a small section of his spinal cord. Doctors estimate that the youth will have to undergo at least two years of exercise and massage before he may be able to walk unaided. Edgar said he now is using a walker apparatus for about one hour a day. He also works with weights to strengthen muscles slackened by three years of inactivity. The young man. however, will not say whether he thinks he will walk again. "I'm up." he said, "and that's a lot better than sitting."
