Airliner bomb threat false Delay suggested in gotft death penalty decision OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment housing bill was pushed through the Commons welfare committee Tuesday amid vigorous bargaining be- tween government and opposi- tion members. The bill, stripped in some areas and bolstered in others, returns to the Commons for third and final reading. Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford said he expects it will reappear for debate soon. The legislation would set up some new housing programs- residential and neighborhood improvement, for provide additional assistance to low-income earners wanting to buy their own homes. Exasperated by the bargain- ing atmosphere in the com- mittee, Charles Caccia ronto Davenport) said at one point: "Perhaps you can do this at a cattle market but not when in- telligently we have to make a decision "as to what will go into the bill." But the committee pressed on with consideration of a bill Mr. Basford says has high priority on the government legislative timetable. AGAINST DEADLINE? It is understood the govern- ment would like to call a sum- mer recess of Parliament by the end of June, adding urgency to consideration of the housing legislation. Mr. Basford accepted a num- ber of Conservative and New Democratic amendments in- cluding a proposal by Eldon jWooliams North) I to set a limit on Interest rates charged on certain loans made by the Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. But, he strongly objected to an amendment by Ron Atkey Paul's) which would broaden provisions for loans to rental landlords for residential rehabilitation. But, the proposal was ap- proved by the committee with New Democrats joining Con- servatives against Liberals. The Atkey proposal would re- move provisions limiting these loans to rental landlords in areas designated for neighbor- hood improvement. It would also require the landlords to put as much money as they ob- tained through loans from CMHC. ,NDP sources said later the party may reconsider its stand on the Atkey amendment when the bill comes up for Commons debate. They said there is con- cern that if landlords have to pay as much as they obtain in loans, they might be dis- couraged from improving ings in poorer areas.

Statistics Canada reported Tuesday a March to April drop in unemployment. The minister said a good many programs already are geared to young people and he is watching the figures with great care. Elmer Mackay (PC Cen- tral Nova) said the unemploy- ment rate in the Atlantic prov- inces is at 11.1 per cent, high- er that it was three years ago. He asked if a new, co-ordinated approach is being prepared, in- volving capital, man power, transportation and taxes. Mr. Turner said that despite tha 11'. 1 per csmt figure, the employment picture in the re- gion improved by 20 per cent in the one month period. Mr. Turner assured the House the government's mone- tary policy continues to be ex- pa izg'onary. Loans by charter- ed banks in the first four months of the year were 30-per- cent higher than last year. James A. McGrath (PC-St. John's East) asked if the fi- nance minister had been teM by the Bank of Canada tflat it will not increase the bank rate again while the government is attempting to expand the econ- omy. The rate was increased twice in the last month. Mr. Turner said monetary policy will continue "to reflect expansion in the economy." He could not promise that the bank rate will remain the same be- cause that was the Bank of Canada's responsibility.
