Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta W.dn.Kfoy, Moy 1970 TNI IFIHBIIDGI HERALD 23 Major Wheat Producers To Hold Down Output OTTAWA (CP) The world's major wheat exporters agreed Tuesday to maintain a co-opera- tive effort to bring production move into line with demand. Hie United States, Canada, Australia, Argentina and the European Economic Community said their governments should avoid programs of support for farm incomes which tend to stimulate uneconomic produc- tion of wheat. In a statement at the dose of a two-day meeting caller) by Canada, the government minis- ters and senior officials also called on wheat-importing coun- tries to help by exercising disci- pline on their own production. Against the background of a world wheat glut and growing surpluses in exporting coun- tries, the conference said there is "urgent need to bring produc- tion .into better relationship with demand." The members "agreed that governments would have to keep production policies under continuing review so that timely and appropriate measures could be taken in the interest of achieving a healthy interna- tional market for wheat." WILL'MEET AGAIN As part of the continuing re- view of production policies, they agreed to consult closely and meet again in about six months. In a reference to widespread use of price-support programs which effectively subsidize wheat in the European market and the United agreed that governments should exercise care in implementing new or existing programs of in- come support to avoid measures which could have the effect of "stimulating uneconomic pro- duction." Otto Lang, Canadian minister responsible for wheat marketing and conference chairman, read the communique in the Com- mons later and _ immediately drew opposition criticism. George Muir and Alt Gleave (NDP-Saska- toon-Biggar) both said no other wheat exporting country has agreed to reduce wheat acreage as Canada is attempting to do. Mr. Muir said Prairie fann- ers are in an intolerable posi- tion as the only unsubsidized wheat producers in the world. Canada alone was carrying the burden of the world wheat sur- plus. Mr. Gleave said Saskatche- wan is in a state of economic shock because of depressed wheat markets while the Euro- pean market countries last year New Land Program Grant Announced DEUMHELLER (CP) Mu- nicipal Affairs Minister Fred Colborne yesterday announced a land development program for the Drumheller area the first such program in Alberta. Mr. Colborne told a news con- ference will be granted in 1970, first year of the pro- gram, to cover part of the cost of installation of water and sew- er connections in North Drum- heller and in Newcastle. In addition, he said, up to will be made available in low interest loans for resi- dents of the Drumheller area who want to have their homes connected to water anil sewer facilities or relocated onto lots serviced with sewer facilities and water. The funds are to be provided by the Alberta Housing Corp. spent to support their wheat farmers. SOVIETS IGNORED T he Canadian government had taken a "partial approach" instead of aiming at a new in- ternational wheat agreement among all exporting and import- ing countries. Importers had not been present at the conference here and Russia had not even been invited, he observed. "The conference communique said participants "took note of the major contributions made by Canada to resolving the over-supply problem by the withdrawal of very substantial acreage from production in 1970." The Canadian program, an- nounced in February, would pay cash for wheatland withdrawn from production. A farmer's quota for delivery of farm- stored wheat or new crop to market also will depend on the number of acres he has placed in summerfallow. The government hopes wheat acreage planted this spring will be reduced by at least two- thirds to acres, despite Prairie protests that the cash- for-fallow program is insuffi- cient. The conference communique also noted that the United States has operated a wheat- acreage reduction program for a number of years. Australia had recently estab- lished quotas "substantially re- ducing" allowable wheat deliv- eries. Argentine production had declined in recent years be- cause of bad weather. All three countries are ex- pected to have increased sup- plies this year for export and stockpiling. CUT ACREAGEvS The United States reduced acreage allotments under its wheat program for the third straight year to acres, down from acres last year and acres three years ago. Australia has reduced the de- livery quota for' its next crop year to bushels from about this year and total deliveries of more than bushels last year. The crop just harvested in Ar- gentina is expected to approach bushels, up from last year. The European market- a prime target of criticism be- cause of farm policies that tend to stimulate wheat production in France and subsidize also is considering ideas to ease the over-supply problem, the conference communique said. One proposal aimed at "a dif- ferent price relationship be- tween wheat and coarse grains" reference to diversion of wheat into feed-grain markets for livestock by dropping prices. Sicco Mansholt, the common market's equivalent of agricul- ture minister, referred to a pro- gram under which bushels of wheat have already been shifted into feed markets. The communique also re- ferred to Dr. Mansholt's own long-range proposals for sub- stantial reduction of land and manpower in agriculture in the EEC. Mr. Lang said after the con- ference that it would be unfair to make comparisons of produc- tion-curb programs among the participating counties. In relating Canada's new pro- gram to those elsewhere, he said, it is necessary to look at "the total position." The United States, for example, and been reducing acreages for the last three years. Agriculture Minister H.A. Olson portrayed the agreement to co-operate in regulating pro- duction as an optimistic indica- tion that the producers are de- termined to work towards a bet- ter system of equating supply and demand. Woolliams Warns Of State Farms LIBERAL CONVENTION WIN NI PEG (OP) The Manitoba Liberal party will hold a policy, convention June 19-21 at the St. James-Assinibo- ia civic centre. OTTAWA (CP) Eldon WooUiams North) told the Commons Tuesday that a government bill to set up a national farm products market- ing council is the "most danger- ous, damaging and destructive legislation brought in by any minister of agriculture." Speaking during debate on the bill's second reading, he said the legislation would lead to no- thing but state farms west of the Great Lakes. The bill would provide mar- keting agencies for ihterprbvin- cial or export purposes for all farm products except grain and dairy products, already cov- ered. The national farm products marketing council, comprising between three and nine govern- ment-appointed members would advise the government on estab- lishment of marketing agencies and hold public hearings on the 'merits of setting UD each agency. SAYS CONTROL SOUGHT Mr. Woolliams said the gov- ernment wants to control mar- keting of all farm commodities. Members of the farm prod- ucts marketing council would be Liberal appointments. "He said marketing by the Ca- nadian wheat board has failed but the government b going to extend marketing to cattle and pigs. The government would lose Canada's current cattlo markets. Mr. WooUiams said that Agri- culture Minister H. A. Olson was a strong voice when ho was in opposition as a member of the Social Credit party. But he was a weak voice in the cabi- net. If he disagreed with the prime minister he would be sent to the Senate. Also Tuesday, the Commons approved a bill on inland water resources in the Yukon and the Northwest Territories. It would require anyone planning to use water for other than domestic purposes to obtain a licence from proposed Yukon or N. W. T. water boards. WAS TIRE EXECUTIVE TORONTO (CP) R. C.
