Consumer Affairs Minister Herb who introduced the bill accused both parties of sanctioning profiteering by their action. His remarks were greeted by a chorus of jeers from Con- servative and NDP members. All three opposition parties had criticized the drafting of the anti-profiteering bill when debate began Wednesday. James McGrath said it was so bad it should never become law and NDP Leader David Lewis called it a sop and hoax. George Hees said Thursday the bill is a sham and a farce. He asked Mr. Gray to withdraw it. Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield asked whether the bill is part of the anti-inflation contingency plans the government has said it has had ready for months. Finance Minister John Turner said the bill has nothing to do with contingency plans. Terry Grier Toronto said inflation is expected to lead to steep increases in vegetable perhaps up to 30 per cent over the next few months. Was any government action Mr. Gray said food processors have made an informal report to the food prices review board. The government would consider action and make appropriate comments when the board makes recommendations. Mr. Conservative consumer affairs said the government was criticized Wednesday by board chairman Beryl Plumptre for ignoring board proposals. A report on egg prices had been given to the government Jan. 9 but nothing had been done except to launch another inquiry. Olympiads Montreal Olympiad Kingston Yacht racing.
