The announcement in the Commons brought angry denunciation from Conservative Jack Marshall, whose want-of-confidence motion came close to defeating the government on the issue two weeks ago. Stanley Knowles North whose party holds the effective balance of power in the Commons, expressed disappointment at the concession made by the government but made it plain the NDP will back the government. Veterans Affairs Minister Dan MacDonald announced that legislation will be introduced extending the VLA deadline to March 31 next year. Under .the act, certain veterans can get low-interest loans for acquisition of small lots. In the case of disabled veterans, home mortages are covered. Both Mr. Marshall (Humber-St. Georges-St. Barbe) and Mr. Knowles served noticed that they will seek amendments to the legislation and Mr. Marshall pegged Conservative support for the government bill to ac- ceptance of the amendments. WANTS REVIEW Mr. Marshall said the bill must say that within 90 days of the new deadline there will be a review by the government to see if another extension is desirable. Mr. Marshall moved the Conservative want-of- confidence motion two weeks ago calling for an extension. As the idea was supported by Mr. Knowles, the government had to negotiate with the NDP and make a commitment to review its position before it could defeat the motion. The Conservative said Mr. MacDonald's announcement Tuesday amounted to a narrow concession. He accused the government of complete lack of compassion for veterans. The new legislation must raise the loan ceilings from the present and increase the minimum size of lots above the present half acre. It was impossible to buy a haif-acre plot for nowadays and the would help the disabled veteran seeking a home in the city. The VLA extension applies only to those veterans who met qualification tests that stopped in 1968. Those qualified by 1968 had until the end of this month to apply for loans. Mr. MacDonald noted that both the 1968 and 1974 deadlines were created by an act of Parliament nine years ago. DEMANDED EXTENSION Mr. Marshall demanded that the 1968 deadline be extended also. Mr. Knowles said he agreed with the Marshall demands. The Commons now had a chance to fight for changes in the legislation and the NDP would do its best to see that changes are made. Then he said, amid Con- servative jeers, that he is proud that the government was not brought down two weeks ago. He said if it had been, there would have been no chance to change the legislation. An ending of- this Parliament would be a disservice to the veteran. The NDP believed MPs should stay in the Commons to seek' to improve the legislation still further, he the expiration of the new said. deadline. 'Outside the Commons Mr. MacDonald said the govern- ment will have to borrow about million to meet additional requests for loans caused by the extension. Much of this would be paid back by veterans. Mr. Marshall said in the House that the extension will cost the government little if anything because the Veterans Land Act 'is almost self-sustaining. Mr. MacDonald told reporters that veterans had passed qualification tests by 1968 but had not applied for loans. He said there could be less than 10.000 applicaons during the extended period. He declined to say whether he will accept Mr. Marshall's demand for a review before WANTED Outside the Commons Mr. Knowles said jf the extension had not been announced there was a chance the NDP would have supported a Conservative non-confidence motion on housing Tuesday night. NDP support for that motion would have brought down the government. Come to Calgary We Will Be In Your Corner NOOK OPEN SOON!
