He appeared to rule out at this time, as Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau did a month ago, any immediate move by the federal cabinet to invoke its contingency plan for price and wage controls. Meantime the pressure is building on the Liberal minority government to take steps to halt the price spiral. Inflationary conditions within the Canadian economy could build into a new political crisis for the minority administration. The Progressive Con- servatives in the house in- troduced a motion an official opposition oring the -'failure of the govern- ment" to take "concrete and ef- fective action against the rising j cost of living.'' The Conservatives in their motion said the governments failure to act was evident in the price of shelter food and cloth- ing. The opposition party mo- tion urged the government to impose an "immediate freeze" so as to enable it to develop a satisfactory plan in conjunction with the industry and labour, for the purpose of keep- ing the cost of living within "acceptable limits." Under the rules the motion cannot come to a vote therefore it does not pose a threat to the minority government. However it is part of the in- creased pressure by the Tories for wage and price controls, a pressure that if the cost of liv- ing continues to mount through- out the spring and summer, the government may find hard to resist. But in the Commons Wednes- day Mr. Turner said a system of price and wage controls would not solve the food price problem. He pointed out it had not been solved by any prices system in the United States or the United Kingdom. The prob- lem of food is a problem of world shortages of com- modities, he said. When the house opened Wednesday Allan Lawrence ham) asked if the Consumer and Corporate Affairs Minister Herb Gray, had formulated any guidelines for clothing prices this year. He said clothes prices increased 1.4 per cent last month and are expected to go higher in the months ahead. Mr. Gray said any policy along this line would be an- nounced in due course. He also said he had made no inquiries among the clothing industry representatives about their price intentions. However he said he would take under con- sideration a suggestion from opposition, that he make such enquiries. The minister also said he had made no specific requests to any individuals, nor sent out any invitations to individuals as yet to serve on the govern- ment's proposed Food Prices Review board. recessing an stems 1003 4th Avenue S., lethbridge Telephone 328-4426 i vices Grain prices Winnipeg grain WINNIPEG (CP) Oilseeds j continued to gain strength in i trading at mid-session' today on the Winnipeg Cbmrnod-1 ity Exchange. i n Most flax futures were al-1 ,151, j ready at the 10-cent trading hm- j Co!

The party will support fast depreciation write-offs for this year and next, plus corporation tax cuts for this year only, he told a political fund- raising dinner. Hovever, there would be no Conservative support for Fi- nance Minister John Turner's original plans to make these measures a continuing part of the tax system. They are contained in Mr. Turner's budget of one year ago and still have not been voted on by Parliament. The New Demo- cratic Party, whose support has kept the minority Liberal gov- ernment alive, is against the corporation tax cuts in any form. The cuts and write-offs would apply only to companies in the manufacturing and processing industries. Fuel shortage al Billings BILLINGS, Mont.
