A ministry official said the South Koreans rejected the pro- posal on grounds that export of the two items to Canada began only in the latter half of last year and it has not reached a level which threatens Canada's textile industry- He said the Canadian delega- tion, now in Hong Kong for sim- ilar lexlile talks there, is sched- uled to return to Seoul to re- sume the talks with Soutb Korea Thursday. The list of South Korean tex- tile items already under Can- ada's import quotas includes cotton broadcloth woven fab- rics, woven shirts, blouses, trou- sers, shorts, cotton yarn, sheets, nylon fabrics and polyester fab- rics. These items accounted for about 30 per cent of the total South Korean exports to Canada last year which amounted to million. 275 Anaconda Bc'h Sleel Chrysler Comsat Duponl GM Gulf Int Harvester Kenn Copper (Supplied By Richardson Securities of Canadi) md T i Sears i Sid Oil of N J.

By JOHN MKYP.R Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Finance Minister Turner has done rather belter for manufacturers than Iliey could have expected. The 50 pel- cent write-off is effective imme- diately. The tax a maximum of 40 per cent on manufacturing income earned in effective al the beginning of 1973. The two mea- sures together will inject about 5500 million into manufacturers' cash fiov.s. Mr. T u r n e r 's critics will argue he is giving away too much to business. Not so. The manufacturers will have lo put up, in terms of investment in expansion and innovation, to collect. That's the weakness o[ using accelerated depreciation as an incentive to growth. The following tax reduction is in- tended as an offset. All manu- facturers will have the tax cut in 1973; those who put their money now into growth receive an added advantage. Consider how this applies to the forest industries. Newsprint producers have bsen arguing, with cause, that they can no longer earn enough after taxes to attract the investment needed to retain their share of market. They proposed an investment allowance of up lo one-third of their taxable income which, they said, would put afler-tax return on a basis competitive with U.S. and Scandinavian pro- ducers. The accelerated write-off, if they move now lo take advan- tage of it, should give them an added edge which, taken in con- junction with the 40 per cent rate next year, when that new capital inveslment is produc- tue, could put them in possibly a better position than their own proposal might have done. Tho key consideration, however, it: still that to obtain full advan- tage, the manufacturers must make the first move. The other consideration is that this approach gives an im- mediate stimulus to the produc- ers of capital goods. They, too, wanlod a stimulus to capital in- vestment. They get it now, in the form of the orders that the accelerated write-off should in- duce, with the advantages of the tax cut following in 1973. Possibly more persuasive than the tax relief measures is I Mr. Turner's tacit recognition I that the weight of taxes can be a heavy drag on business growth. None of his recent pred- ecessors would accept this. The case for relief for manufactur- ers, however, has been alto- gether loo apparent to have ig- nored much longer, not with their potential, once back on the trend line, of upwards new jobs. Manufacturers, as Mr. Turner notes, have paid more taxes, relative u, the value of their output, than olher industries. The consequences have been ap- parent in a decline in their ca- padly to provide jobs, relative to the whole labor force, and the absence of any significant in- crease in the volume of their prcducD'oi? condi- tion which was bound to worsen as the full impact of DISC and olher U.S. las measures was fell. The way to redress this has not been, as Eric Kierans and others have argued, to withdraw the tax advantages other indus- tries, notably lhe extractive in- dustries, have enjoyed. That only increases the tax drag on growth. The way to redress is Mr. Turner's way: lighten the lax burden on manufacturing until it becomes compelilive wilh other jurisdictions.
