"Such action could be very effective." Reports from Denmark Mon- day were that the country plans to resist Canadian calls for an immediate halt to salmon fish- ing operations off Greenland.

The meeting is of the 1-1 coun- tries making up the Interna- tional Commission for the Northwest Atlantic Fishery. He said outside the House that the Danes cannot take such a rigid position. Denmark had said last, year it was not con vinced its Greenland fishery was hurting ihe salmon runs in Canada. This year Canada could face the Danes witli more dra malic evidence. He said he does not know wh> the United Slates signed an a g r e e m e n I with the Danes under which the latter will stop fishing off Greenland by 1975 The U.S. had virtually no i salmon of its own.

Blended and Bottled in Scotland by White Horse Distillers Ltd., Scotland OTTAWA (CP) The health department is drafting regula- tions to sel a "floor on the re- j quired protein content'' of wci- ners and sausage products. Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the de- j partment's health protection branch, says. Under the regulations.- to come into effect later this year, meat packers will be required to put more protein into the products than most now have. Dr. Morrison said that during the past 10 years the amount of protein in Canadian wciners dropper! to 12 per cent from about 141-; per cent. The protein consists mainly of beef and pork. Sausage or sausage meat may legally contain animal fat, filler, beef tripe, liver, fresh blood, bleed plasma, and sea- sonings and preservatives. If j fresh, the product may not con- tain more than 40 per cent fat. If sold cooked, they may con- tain a drier! skim milk product. Frances Balls, executive sec- retary of the Consumers Asso- j elation of Canada, said the asso-1 elation is ''extremely pleased" that ihe government, is consider- ing regulating protein content.

EDMONTON (CP) A bill to allow members of the leg- islature to sit on the Alberta Hospital Services Commission received second reading, but not before almost an hour of some times acrimonius debate. The vote on second reading was to 20 with one Social Credit member, Art Dixon of Calgary Millican, voting with government Conservatives. leader Grant Nolley voted with 19 Social Credit members. At one point, the Opposition claimed lliat sitting MLAs on the commission was patronage, and Albert Ludwig (SC Cal- gary Mountain" View) said the government has "a propensity for Premier Peter Loughecd, asked to state government po- sition on MLAs sitting on boards and commissions, be- gan to speak but was cut off by Mr. Ludwig on a point of priv- ilege. He did not continue. Health Minister Neil Craw- I ford, said MLAs "have a con- tribution to make on the boards.1' They would be paid only travelling and living ex- penses. LUST FOR GREED Cordon Taylor (SC Drum- hellcr) said the Conservatives have a "lust for greed." Robert Clark (SC Olds- Didsluiry) said the government should keep legislative and ad- ministrative functions separate, while James Henderson Leduc) read a lengthy list of Ontario boards on which MLAs sit and receive stipends of more lhan a year. He wondered if the Lougheed administration intended lo fol- low Ontario's example, starting with tiie Alberta Heallh Ser- vices Commission. "One can only wonder (he di- rection this Ihrust is in. Is it in effect an effort to increase the remuneration of he asked. FINGERS IN JAK Mr. Ludwig said the Conser- vative backbenchers had been "caught dipping their fingers into the cookie jar" on another issue and now were looking for "legalized patronage" in ap- pointments to government boards. The government has been criticized by the Opposition for its decision to pay expenses to special committees made up only of government members. Mr. Nolley said one way around the problem would be to have full-lime MLAs who could sit on boards and com- missions.
