EVERYBODY WELCOME by Canadian Canoer SocWy District Unit British expecting'soak the rich9 budget Chou referred to the two superpowers without mentioning them by name. His main target was clearly the Soviet Union He made no mention of the latest Sino-Soviet squabble over a Soviet helicopter which was on a spying mission The Russians say the aircraft went astray in bad weather when it landed in western China earlier this month. From AP-REUTER LONDON (CP) Britain went on a spending spree dur- ing the weekend, hoping to beat tax increases expected in the Labor government's first budget since resuming power early this month. Department stores, discount houses, jewellers and liquor stores all reported a roaring Saturday trade. A London liquor group reported sales up by 50 per cent. A big store chain said radio and TV sales were up more than 70 per cent. The buyers were clearly ex- pecting an austerity package from Denis Healey, chancellor of the exchequer, in his budget speech Tuesday. Healey's task is to push exports up, contain inflation, cope with the increased oil import bill and restore overseas confidence in the pound. He is pledged to ease direct taxation on the lower-paid, in- crease old-age pensions from the present (118.80) a week level to hit real estate speculators whose soaring profits have made them the target of "all politicians. Heavy taxes on higher in- comes, luxury goods and capital gains are expected in the budget. Financial observers predict it will take about billion out of the British economy to bolster the balance of payments and ease inflation. Widespread austerities are expected in a soak-the-rich budget. Higher duties on wine, liquor and heavily on wind- fall profits through property development and new imports on business are widely predicted. But a wealth tax threatened in the Labor party's election manifesto is expected to be deferred. Healey earned a reputation for austerity during nearly six years as Labor's defence minister starting in 1964. The new minister has taken a crash course in economics and surrounded himself with high-powered advisers, mostly from Cambridge University. In speeches as "shadow" chancellor, he promised a re- distribution of wealth calculated to. make the rich howl with pain. But most observers agree that lack of time for detailed studies will force Healey to delay his proposed new taxes on incomes above until autumn. Arab League meeting, said the ministers also will discuss economic issues. They will discuss the conference between the Arab states and the European Common Market planned for the end of the year, and the special United Nations Assembly on raw materials problems opening in New York April 8. Princess flies to West Germany Hospital visit Princess Anne talks to police constable Michael Hills LONDON (CP) Princess Anne flew to Germany today to visit a British Army regiment after paying hospital visits to thank three men shot while attempting to save her from a kidnap attempt outside Buckingham Palace. Her chauffeur, who also was wounded, was discharged from the hospital Sunday. The 23-year-old princess also visited the Queen and Prince Philip at Windsor Castle to give them a first- hand account of the kidnap attempt Wednesday. She spent 10 minutes at Westminster Hospital chatting with her former bodyguard, Inspector James Beaton, 30, wounded three times in the shooting. "She just said 'Thank you very much and we talked about the Beaton said. Englishman Ian BalLhas been charged with at- tempted murder in the attack. Then Anne went to nearby St. George's Hospital to see journalist Brian McConnell, who was passing in a taxi at the time of the attack, and Constable Michael Hills, who was shot as he ran to her aid. Hospital authorities NDP Premier Barrett: Oil firms 'should use tax: dodges9 VANCOUVER (CP) Premier Dave Barrett said Saturday he does not blame oil companies for taking advantage of the Canadian tax laws to avoid paying what he said is a fair share of their revenue in taxes The British Columbia premier said that if he were an oil company executive, he too would take advantage of every loophole, dodge.and gimmick. Mr. Barrett made the statement during a debate with John Poyen, the president of the Canadian Petroleum Association, winch was taped by the CTV network. Saturday for national telecast next month The premier called for an end to excessive profits for Brinco officials meet ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Officials of the Newfoundland government and Brinco met during the weekend at Premier Frank Moores home in an apparent effort to find an alternative to a government- legislated takeover of the company. There was no immediate comment on the talks.

He also said oil prices in Canada must eventually move up to the world level, but the public should gel some sort of compensation, probably in the form of bigger tax exemptions. Mr. Poyen said that oil companies have been of great service to Canada by putting the country into a position tof self-sufficiency. He said the country has all the gas and oil it needs, and Canadians are getting it "at wonderful prices." The president of the petroleum association praised Mr. Barrett's NDP government for consulting the oil industry before forming policy on oil and gas production and marketing in B. C. The premier asked the federal government to commit itself to a long-range oil policy. "The challenge to the federal government is to lay out a policy and say within 10 years, as President Nixon has done in the United States: 'We will be self-sufficient in entergy supplies, develop a delivery system and work out a taxation policy with the companies until we move to either a marketing board or public Mr. Barrett. "We haven't had that leadership from Ottawa and. quite frankly, I think it goes back to part and parcel of our system of campaign funds, decision-making and everything else that goes into politics. SERVICE STATION DEALERS URGED TO PASS ON FUEL TAX REDUCTION EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta Automotive Retailers Association is asking all service station dealers in the province to pass on to the motoring publice the full five-cent reduction in gasoline tax which would take effect April 1. The reduction was announced Friday in Alberta's 1974-75 by Provincial Treasurer Gordon Miniely. At a meeting with Premier Lougheed, the association pleged full support to the tax cut but advised the government that if oil companies announce increases in the wholesale price of gasoline next month, operators will have to increase prices at the pump by more than the exact amount of the wholesale increase to maintain operating margins. President Arch Dickson of Calgary, association president, said service station operators have complied with the federal government request for a gasoline price freeze voluntarily since last September but operating costs and overhead have :g risen drastically since then and the dealers can't continue to absorb the cost increases. Pension inquiry backed WINNIPEG (CP) Federal Labor Minister John Munro reiterated Sunday he is in favor of a complete inquiry into railway pensions. However, the minister told a national meeting of Canadian National Railways locomotive engineers their pension plan is already better than the public service plan. He said this is because the pension plans for both major railways are based on the best five years of service, while the public service plan is based on the best six.
