Great Britain will be guided n her trading by regulations hich govern the rest of the 2CM countries, and for Canada lat means two major changes. Bernard M, White, commer-ial secretary for agriculture of he Canadian High Commission n the U.K., said in an inter-iew that British entry into ie ECM will mean Canada will now have to compete with ther countries equally in the rading world. Gone will be Commonwealth references which have given Janada and the rest of t h e roducts entering Great Bri-ain or other ECM mcmber-alions. For the minimum import price levy system, the ECM els Ihe minimum price. If Canada ships a product which s above that minimum price, he firm would be levied a charge to make up the difference so the product sells at the irice suggested for ECM coun-ies. Mr. White, who is informing Canadian exporters about changes in the regulations, is also on a fact finding mission across Canada, looking particularly at the fish and agricul-ure industries.

New job By GREG McINTYRK Herald Stalf Writer A senior federal government official has prescribed a "quasi-autonomous public employment corporation" to solve the country's unemployment problems. Tlie proposed agency would hire unemployed people, particularly high school and post-secondary graduates without job prospects, with contracts guaranteeing a job "at reasonable pay" for five years, said Neil Perry, assistant deputy minister of manpower. The only catch "if you want to call it that" is that clients must go anywhere and lake any job given them during a five-year contract, he said at a conference here on higher education. The agency would be created by government, but act independently. It would find people jobs in government, industry or help them become self employed, he said. Tlie corporation would "provide that intermediate slep" between college or university and the work-a-day world, he said Dr. Perry said agencies such as Canada Manpower are developing better methods to match the unemployed with available jobs. The current high number o unemployed college and agency f ty graduates is probably only short term problem, he said. To illustrate the "palhetic" tuatlon that currently faces any college and university udents seeking jobs, Dr. told of a 23-year-old his-ry student from British Col-mbia who graduated mill a achelor of Arts degree and ouldn't find a job in his own province. With his wife and small child, ie spent all his money to travel o Ottawa where he tried wilh-ut success to find work in the ublic service.
