This is a normal situation for election just as it is normal for the incumbent government to give the impression thdt it is very much as busy as it would be if there was no campaign on. because of the mi- nority position of the Liberals and their precarious hold on office in the past two elected officials have gone out of their way recently to create the impression that it would remain as usual in until the ballots counted. Prime Minister .Pierre Trudeau told a news conference a few hours after obtaining dissolution of the House of Commons from the governor-general last week that it was important for the people of Canada to realize the government went on in its functions despite the con- fidence-vote defeat in the House. A number of House of immediately cease- the Commons do not sit or any of its committees. is little different from Christmas or summer in that the MPs are away and it the question period to prepare for every day or the long hours a minister has to spend periodically testifying before a committee. normally spend a considerable amount of time every day anticipating questions in the House and preparing answers to expected questions for our a top official said in an interview this week. keeps us on our but we have time to catch up on little things that we normally don't bother he added. Those do not include any significant policy decsion for the 59 days of the election campaign. Cabinet officially meets once a sometimes and Cabinet committees plus the official meetings can keep a minister busy in reunion with his colleagues every day of the week under normal conditions. there is only the once-a-week and the executive assistant to a prominent minister pointed out that the most urgent matters are brought to the minister's attention for a everything else is There is even a system of carriers to bring urgent matters needing a minister's and whereever he may be campaigning on the hustings. An unwritten rule of the public service is that no project is undertaken which could be construed as an electoral gambit for the duration of the campaign. By ANDRE OUIMET Herald Ottawa Bureau This includes sensitive nominations and former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker went out of his way to get a commitment from Mr. Trudeau immediately following his Commons defeat to the effect that no important nomination would be made in the coming two months. Only hours before the Liber- als were turfed Mr. Trudeau's office had announced two Senate appointments and Mr. Diefenbaker maintained that this was not proper. Mr. Trudeau did point at a news conference the next that Mr. Diefenbaker was certainly not above reproach in a similar respect in that a number of important nominations had been made immediately after the Conservatives were defeated in the Commons in 1963. But serious decisions do have to be and a typical example involves the Law of the Sea conference to be held in Caracas in late June. An external affairs who is involved in planning the said in an interview Canada's official position will have to be delayed .until after the election results are known. All United Nations members will and the conference is important in that it may alter international law and could permit such countries as with thousands of miles of coast to extend its jurisdiction over coastal waters hundreds of miles out so sea. This would be welcome by Canadian and as such it is a political issue. So that probably no official Canadian position will be made known at the conference until it is well under a distinct disadvantage at these because the lines are pretty well drawn in the first few days and Canada could lose any advantage by coming in late. would really take some- thing of crisis proportion to get a full-strength cabinet meeting underway during the another official said. is four and that's easily met if you in- clude those ministers who live close to Ottawa plus Senator Paul Martin. But none of their deliberations would be to evolve policy or anything like in such cannot use government air- craft unless there is a clear and any trip which could have the slightest political connotation is automatically banned in order to avoid any Opposition criticism at a most delicate time. And MPs lose their right to travel to and from their riding for free putting an end to caucus meetings and. any input the MPs could have in government few that are the campaign. They also lose their free use of the mails as of prorogation of the in only paid candidates for their former seat.
