The Canadian Press reported erroneously Thursday that pre- liminary anti-dumping duties had been imposed. The investigation to decide whether anti dumping levies will be imposed concerns stain- less flat rolled steels from Ja- pan and Sweden and some alloy tool steel bars originating in or exported from Sweden and Aus- tria, Dumping Is found to occur when investigation shows lhat an imported product is being sold at prices below the normal value in the country of export. The anti-dumping Irihunal will make a determination on injury to Canadian production if the investigation establishes that dumping has occured. If Iherc is no injury, the anti- dumping duties are refunded. Opposition MPs said they were suspicious of both as- pects of the farm credit bill. Jack Homer (Crowfoot) lead- Ing Conservative farm critic, said the government wants lo make the corporation responsi- ble for ils farm consolidation Policy shift seen CAP) An assistant secretary of the Inte- rior announced Thursday what appeared lo be a major policy shift, on United States oil import restrictions. But a White House spokesman said no such policy change was under consideration by Presi- dent Nixon. Oilier key officials at the inte- rior department and the While House were not immediately available to clarify the issue. flollis M. Dole, assistant sec- retary of the interior, appeared to indicate in a speech prepared for a galheriug in New York that the present fixed limit on oil imports lo the Eastern states would be replaced by a flexible formula. Since 1959, oil imporUs bave been limited by presidential proclamation with the staled purpose ot protecting national security by preventing over-de- pendence on foreign oil sources. Wesl of Ihe Rocky Mountains, oil imporls are limited to mak- ing up the difference between regional demand and available domestic production. East of Ihe Rockies, however, there has been a fixed quola Ijermiltmg imports equivalent to 12.2 per cent of domestic pro- duction, plus specific additional amounts under special authori- zations. CHANGE IN PROCESS In his speech, for the Oil Daily Forum on Synthetic En- ergy, Dole said Thursday that "the oil import program that we have had in effect since 1959 Is in the process of shifting gears." this year the program was administered to accommo- date a surplus in productive ca- pacity east of the Hnclry Moun- he said. "The surplus has now disap- peared and Hit oil industry throughout the United States is producing virtually at capac- ity." Then Dole added: "The new emphasis on the program will be lo permit imports to f'll the gap between demand and pro- duction, both east and west ot Ihe Rockies." GINTER IN RUNNING VANCOUVER (CP) Prince George industrialist Ben Ginlcr said here he plans to run as a Liberal candidate in the next program so it can sidestep ac- seek the countability in the Commons.
