Phona demand removal of tribal head Tories fail in new bid to topple Liberal gov't By JEAN-GUY CARRIER OTTAWA (CP) Another Progressive Conservative as- sault on the minority Liberal government failed Tuesday night in the Commons thanks to support from the New Demo- crats and most Social Credit MPs. A carefully-framed Con- servative motion on government budget policies was designed to embarrass the NDP in its con- tinuous support of the Liberals. The motion waa defeated 147 to 108. Introduced by Opposition Leader Robert StanfieM, the non-confidence motion slated: "That this House expresses ils lack of confidence that the com- bination of the corporate tax re- ductions and accelerated depr- eciation write-offs contained in the budget of May, 1972, and proposals contained in the budget of February, 1973, con- stitutes an adequate and equi- table response to the needs of the country." The NDP eased out of the sit- uation by dismissing the motion as Conservative "hoiery- pokery" although leader David Lewis reSerated his elecfion promises to oppose so-called Liberal corporate welfare pol- icies. The Conservatives had sup- ported the Liberal proposals to assist business when they woro first brought before the Com- mons in 1972. The vole was the 14th on record since the 29th session opened Jan. 4. It was about the sixth vote on a non-confidence the exact number de- pending on the interpretation of what is a non-confidence mo- tion. At the outset the Con- servatives saw it as one of their more promising attempts to topple the Liberals. HELLYER WOOS NDP Paul Hellyer Trinity) speaking before the vole, called on the "big bad wolf in sheep's cloth- give a puff with the Conservatives to blow down the government. He drew hoots and catcalls in response! When tha vote came there were present in the Commons 108 Liberals, 30 NDP members, 104 Progressive Conservatives and 13 Social Credit MPs. Nine of the Social Credit members voted with the Liber- als and four with the Con- servatives. There ore 264 seats in the House. Liberals hold 109, Con- servatives 107, NDP 31, Social Credit 15 and there are two in- time of the House" in their con- tinuous efforts to defeat the government, he said. Mr. Slanfield repeated his party's determination to oust the Liberals and take office. Hp dismissed Liberal corporate as- sistance proposals as in- sufficient and said .his party would set up a small-business investment credit foundation that would provide government funds to help small enterprises. Max Bailsman, NDP finance critic, scoffed at the proposal and called it "crackpot eco- nomic policy."
