Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Welfare minister verbally belted OTTAWA (CP! Welfare .Minister John Munro was ver- bally .belted by the Conserva- tives and New Democrats here as the Commons resumed de- bate on a bill to transform the family allowance system. New Democrat House Leader Stanley Knowles (Winnipeg North Centre) urged Mr. Munro to "take this bill to the drawing boards." He said the legislation is a "complicated mess" while the current Family Allowance Act is much easier to administer. Jack Marshall (PC-Humber- St. Georgc's-St. Barbe) said the government is not moving quickly enough to implement the legislation once it has re- ceived parliamentary approval. He questioned the several target dates mentioned by the govern- ment in the last year. Mr. Munro said it is impossi- ble to implement the legislation immediately on royal assent as proposed by Mr. Marshall. The bill, wlilch is being de- bated at report stage, would end the current baby bonus plan and would give more money to replace it with a plan that would give more money to fewer people. BASED ON INCOME The Family Allowance Act provides payments to all fami- lies with children while the new legislation would give money primarily to those families with day. annual incomes below Mr. Knowles suggested the delay necessary to implement the new legislation is an indica- tion of the serious administra- tive problems facing the welfare department By basing payments on in- come, tlie government would have to constantly check to see whether the individual receiving the payment was making more or less than the previous year. Mr. Marshall said that when the legislation was first intro- duced last year, the welfare minister set a target date of May this year for implementa- tion. This year, Mr. Munro had said it would take six or seven months to get the machinery in operation and later departmen- tal officials had reported the new plan would not be in opera- tion until next summer. Mr. Munro replied that dis- cussions with the provinces and establishing the governmental machinery to operate the plan require a delay oE about one year. PROVIDED NO INSURANCE Mr. Marshall said the new legislation does nothing to en- sure that the payments will be used for the benefit of the chil- dren concerned. As the legislation stood, be said, the pajmients would be "an outright, grant to adults" adding the existing legislation makes it clear that family al- lowances be used for the chil- dren. He was supported by other Conservative MPs, but Mr. Munro said such a clause would be impossible to police. He said the money would go into the "general family income pot" and therefore benefit the chil- dren. The amendment was de- feated. Another amendment by Mr. Marshall, calling for certain ret- roactive payments, was ruled ided the maximum benefits to these children. The minister said the change meets (be requests of provincial welfare ministers. The House also approved an- other amendment by the minis- ter that would ensure that any province operating youth allow- ance schemes would be paid the amount the federal government would normally give to 16-18 year-olds in that province. Mr. Munro said this Is directed par- ticularly to Quebec, which now has such a scheme. If the province spends more than the federal government would have paid directly to youths in the privince, the dif- ference must be made up from oilier provincial revenue, if it i 1 Denturists receive green light FIRST ISOLATED Aluminum W8S first isolated by the Danish rJiemist Hans Christian Oersted! in 1825.

The government's decision allow dcnturlsts to deal direct with the public runs counter a major recommendation of t Ontario Council of Health's re- i nort on dental technicians, JOHN HUNBO urged that "no dental opposition target auxiliary personnel be permit- ted to work directly with the public except under the direct supervision of a dentist." Mr. Welch said the new bill will not become law until tho legislature reconvenes in the fall. In the meantime, the new board will draw up the regula- tions governing qualifications of the denturists, who now will be known as dental technologists. i Under the existing' Dentistry About 400 cf the Eskimos I Act are allowed to in Frobisher, on the east coast make dentures only under pre- of Baffin Island, are taking part scripUon a qualified dentist, in the program, said Dr. J.

About 20 per cent of Canada's eskimos have active tub- erculosis compared to about one per cent cf the general popula- tion of British Columbia, which he used as an example. In the average Canadian pop- ulation, the incidence o! TB is highest in men more than and most of these cases are in men more than 60, he said. However, among the Eskimos it is women aged 15 to 24 who have the highest rate, closely followed by women aged 25 to losis control program in Territories. outside the legislature, Mr the Uyeich sajd the government re jected a request by the dentur The Frobisher program Is jsts the legislation include costing about a month, a ciausc whereby all clenturists including costs of the drugs and n 0 w operating aulomatically the Eskimo workers who have wouid be licensed.

The two doctors were part of panel describing treatment of tuberculosis in'Eskimos. Dr. Galbraith stressed that TB among Eskimos has been reduced during tlie last five years, with about 101 new or reactivated cases occurring in 1S71 compared with 212 in 1967. But he said the college will obey the government's orders to cease laying charges against 70 denture clinics now breaking the law by dealing directly with the public.' Mr. Welch said the govern- ment recognized the need to ex- pand the role of dental auxilia- ries and consequently didn't feel it was necessary to have the work of the technologists super- vised by a dentist.
