NEW CAR SAFETY RULES ANNOUNCED OTTAWA (CP) Separate lap And shoulder safety belts, now mandatory on all cars Australia slops shipping wheat UNITED NATIONS (AP) Australia has stopped shipping vheat to Rhodesia, the Security Council's committee on Rhode- sian sanctions announced to- day. Some committee members had suggested in 1970 that the shipments violated a council trade embargo aimed at bring- ing down Rhodesia's white mi- Approve frisking I Sweet tooth Labor force slashed at harbor MONTREAL (CP) A cam- paign to reduce the labor force on the docks at Montreal har- bor ended successfully Saturday as 494 longshoremen resigned to receive each and full pension benefits. Another 30 longshoremen, scheduled to retire Jan. 1, also resigned Saturday to re- ceive their pensions. Arnold Masters, president of the Maritime Employers' Asso- ciation said in an in- terview the men rsceived .their cheques Friday and the resigna- tions became effective today. The retirements were ar- ranged through an agreement between the MEA and the In- ternational Longshoremen's As- sociation in an effort to cut at the port. Mr. Masters said the agree- ment "augurs well for the port of Montreal. "Now v.'e have a work force more in line with the volume of cargo tonnage passing through Montreal." The MEA will pay more than million to the men. Mr. Mas- ter said the men are no longer needed on the docks because of technological changes in cargo handling and a slow rate of growth. The longshoremen's contract S obliges the employers to pay jeach dockworter a year j whether he works or not. manufactured in Canada, will be replaced by a single, one- piece, three point belt on all cars produced alter Jan. 1, 1974. The change was one of a ser- ies of new safety regulations announced here by Transport Minister Jean Marchand. The improved seat-belt should not result in any significant price increases, he said. He also announced that rear bumpers, after Jan. 1, 1974, must be able to withstand an impact of five miles an hour without damaging essential op- erating systems on cars. This doubles the current limit. At the same tiaie, he said, steps will also be taken standardize bumper heights. But the regulation will not ap- ply to vehicles with a wheel base of 115 inches or less until the following year if the ve- hicles ara convertibles, hard- tops or cars without rear pas- senger seats. Mr. Marchand said the gov- ernment also plans to adopt a regulation that would provide so-called fail-safe throttle con- trol at minor cost. He did not indicate when this will be done. He said the throttle system envisaged would involve two separate mechanisms to ensure a return to the idle position in 'iSe of failure. H2 also said signal lights will be made mandatory for mo- torcycles and those en cars will be required to be capable of turning off automatically when a turn is completed. Again, there was no indication when the changes will be effective. Municipal reform bill clears first hurdle FREDERICTON (CP) A Conservative government pro- posal to give New Brunswick municipalities larger grants has woo approval in principle from Liberals in the provincial legis- lature but some opposition members fear local autonomy, the province's villages and property taxpayers will suffer along the way. The more contentious provi- sions of a municipal reform package include the govern- ment's intention to assume more control of local budgets when municipalities are in fi- nancial trouble, hand new re- sponsibilities to the province's villages and pass over a pro- posed tax shelter for property owners. But Municipal Affairs Minis- ter Horace Smith said a new unconditional grant formula which forms the cornerstone of the package would give the mu- nicipalities a better deal. It would have increased provincial grants to the cities, towns and villages by million to million if it had been in effect Provincial grants to cities and last year. BASED ON STUDY The municipal reform pack- age is based on the recommen- dations earlier -this year ol a provincial group headed by Ed- win G. Allen, deputy minister of municipal affairs, which studied municipal finances and struc- tures. The group said New Bruns- wick's six-year-old municipal grant system was far superior to existing grant systems in other jurisdictions. But it said improvements based on better data systems could be made. The existing grant system was introduced in 1867 by the former Liberal government. At that time, the provincial government abolished county councils and assumed responsi- bility for primary and secon- dary education, social welfare, health and justice. The province levied its own property tax of towns were based on averaga municipal spending within threa population groups. The new unconditional grant formula recommended by tha study group and accepted by the government bases the pro- vincial assistance on the tax- able assessment of each individ- ual municipality, abolishing the old population grouping. Mr. Smith said the new system will allow each municipality to stand on its own. Under the told system, vil- lages received a straight 45 per cent of their annual budget from the provincial govern- ment. Under the new system, they will receive unconditional grants on the same basis as the cities and towns.
