Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTH6RIDGE HERALD Wednesday. June 20, 1973 Key study parts altered 6y cabinet TORONTO (CP'i The Star says that key parts of a com- j prehensive energy study to be released next week by Energy Minister Donald Macdonald have been watered down by the federal cabinet. The newspaper says docu- ments it obtained show that the cabinet's priorities and planning committee directed Mr. J.facdo- tiald April 10 to redraft the huge energy study to portray "a more neutral stand on major issues." The issues, tlie newspaper says, include the advisability of setting up a government-owned j oil comoany and measures to get m'i'e tax revenue from energy resources. The Star says the full cabinet approved the committee sion in a meeting April 12. j The newspaper says minutes j of the meeting show that Mr. j Macdonald v.-as instructed to' confine his comment to "major objectives'' for energy policy until a package of specific .pro- posals is ready. The newspaper says the min- utes suggest that Mr. Macdo- nald should try to have the spe- cific policies ready "as soon as possible in and in the meantime keep his views pri- vate. Mr. Macdonald refused in an interview Monday to comment en the cabinet directive, but did say the cabinet had suggested changes in the energy paper- changes "intended to make it a more balanced statement."

But even industry, spokes- claiming the effect on the consumer would be 'minimal and producers are not going to get a boost of such magnitude.

"There could be a consider- able increase in the wellhead price without a large increase to the consumer. The price to the consumer averages about SI per cubic feet. The well- head price is about 20 cents. The other 80 cents is pipeline transportation. distribution costs and other local service ex- penses."
