Iceland expels ritish diplomat Gov't ready to discuss wiretapping OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand is willing to discuss RCMP elec- tronic surveillance in govern- ment security before a third closed-door meeting of the Com- mons justice and legal affairs committee, it was revealed Tuesday night. Commissioner W. L. Higgitt todl the committee the RCMP does not conduct wiretapping or bugging in its pursuit of crimi- nals, but he declined to answer when asked about "electronic surveillance." He called that a "wider question." It is understood that tlie topic of "electronic surveillance" was involved in one of the two pri- vate meetings the committee has already had on the subject of government security. As Conservative and New Democratic Party members of the committee pressed ques- tions about wiretapping, chair- man James Jerome bury) and CommissioDer Hig- gilt said Mr. Allmand is willing to appear at another private committee meeting. The committee is shortly to start considering the govern- ment bill to outlaw wiretapping except for police and security matters. In most cases, police would require permission from a pro- vincial attorney-general or the solicitor-general and a judge, to apply wiretapping or other de- vices to individuals or groups. But in emergencies police could apply bugging devices with permission from the attor- ney-general or the solicitor-gen- eral. But they would have to get permission from a judge before the evidence so obtained could be used in court. Opposition members on the committee pressed Commis- sioner Higgitt to say how much wiretapping would be required by police and how much is being done now. Mr. Higgitt said organized crime is increasing and police need all tools available to fight it. But he would not say, at first, whether there is RCMP wire- tapping in pursuit of criminals. Questioners did not pursue se- curity matters.

The Icelandic government decided today to expel British diplomat Michael Elliott on grounds that he divulged secret information on the movements of Icelandic ships. The latest development in the ''cod war'' between England and Iceland was announced by the government's chief spokes- man. Hannes Jonsson. Elliott, a member of the for- eign office news department, arrived here during the week- end on temporary assignment. A formal British embassy ex- planation of the circumstances that led Elliott to discuss at a news conference the location of Icelandic ships failed to sway the Reykjavik government. For one member country of the North Atlantic Treaty Or- ganization (NATO! to expel the I diplomat of another member country has no precedent in the 24-year-old organization. It seems certain the action heighten tension between the two governments. The Icelanders, it seemed, took exception to Elliott dis- cussing the whereabouts of their gunboats in the dispute 50- mile fishing zone. Elliott, on the other hand, was repeating information made available earlier Tuesday by the British foreign office in Lon- don. He made no immediate com- ment on the development.

States presidential adviser Henry Kissinger and North Vietnam's Le Due Tho have agreed to a new peace plan that calls for Saigon and Viet Cong forces in South Vietnam to stop shooting, but which apparently makes no proposal for ending the war in Cambodia, Saigon government sources said Tues- day. The South Vietnamese gov- ernment has given its approval in principle to the new accord. Saigon sources reported, but has asked for some unspecified modifications. Canada announced in Ottawa, meanwhile that it will withdraw from the International Commis- sion of Control and Supervision charged with monitor- ing the ceasefire. It was not im- mediately clear what effect the Canadian pullout would have on Tourism cabinet post requested EDMONTON (CP) The Tourist industry in Alberta is important enough to warrant the formation of a regular port- folio in the provincial cabinet, the Travel Industry Associa- tion of Alberta said Tuesday. Tourism has been handled at the cabinet level by a minister without portfolio. The Travel Industry Associa- tion, presenting a brief to the cabinet, also asked the govern- ment to increase its tourism budget. It said the present rate of government funding to the pri- vate sector of the tourist indus- try is inadequate. Tourism was the province's third highest producer of revenue and en- couraged new industries and job opportunities. The brief also asked for bet- ter park facilities and better protection of the environment. Violence mars Vhter election'' BELFAST (AP) Two car bombs exploded today in the heart of Belfast, and a Roman Catholic candidate was wounded by an axe-wieldirg moo as Northern Ireland's local gov- ernment voting got under way. Rioting flared in other areas after polls opened under army and police guard. Officials be- lieved that the Irish Kepublican Army's Provisional wing was trying to create chaos to upset the balloting. A civilian and a British sol- dier were injured by the first bomb on busy North Street. The bomb, hidden in a parked panel truck, was spotted 10 minutes before it exploded giving police time to clear the area. The bombers gave the army only a three-minute warning, an army spokesman said. The second car bomb ex- ploded half an hour later in nearby Great Patrick Street. First reports mentioned no cas- ualties. Austin McGrogan, a Catholic candidate on the nonsectorian Alliance party, was attacked by a mob in the Anderson district as he l-oiirftrl the area in car, police said. the reported Kissinger-Tho agreement, though the Cana- dians said they were giving the 60-day notice in an effort to re- main on hand for the first day of the new pact's application. The plan provides for an im- mediate halt to all American reconnaissance flights over North Vietnam and an end within 24 hours to hostilities be- t w e e n Saigon government forces and the Viet Cong. Kissinger has emphasized he intends to conclude the agree- ment with Tho at their next round of talks beginning June 6 in Paris. ANNOUNCE TIMETABLE Government sources in Saigon said the timetable in the new plan goes like this: five and 30 days after a ceasefire, Saigon and Viet Cong will permit monitors from both sides to be deployed with their immunity guaran- teed. the same time period the United States will resume clear- ing mines from North Vietnam- ese waters and resume eco- nomic talks with Hanoi. of control are to be demarcated within three months. six months a council of national reconciliation and concord is to be established and the procedure set for national elections.

There was no guarantee that the new pact, as reported by the sources here, would work any better than the original ceasefire agreement.

The matter was pressed by Terry O'Connor J. Trevor Morgan Catharines) and others. The commissioner finally said there is no wiretapping or bugging in operations against criminals. But asked about "electronic surveillance" he said that is a "wider question." After some pressing he mentioned two court cases, one on the west coast, in which electronic bug- ging was involved. Questioned by Stuart Leggatt Westminster) and others, Mr. Higgitt said organ- ized crime is increasing by many percentage points. In answer to questions from John Gilbert (NDP-Toronto Broadview) the commissioner said there is a tremendous in- crease in the use of drugs among 19-to 25-year-olds. Mr. Gilbert asked if the RCMP pay students who report on drugs in high schools and other places. "Perhaps, on some occa- Mr. Higgitt replied. He assured Mr. Gilbert the RCMP does not interfere with student affairs on campuses. But it did use information on drugs from students. "We'll accept information from he said. The commissioner said drug problem is too big for the police to handle alone. The problem required help from all the people. Mentally retarded school facilities shake Lougheed RED DEER (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed and Health Minister Neil Crawford admit- ted Tuesday being shaken and stunned by a tour of a school for mentally retarded children. Mr. Crawford said orders will be issued immediately to speed up a major reconstruc- tion program at the school as fast "as humanly possible." Money will not stand in the way of the reconstruction, he told a news conference. The premier and Mr. Craw- ford the Alberta school hospital for mentally retarded children. It accommodates 845 and has a waiting list of more than 300. "I was most disturbed by the crowding conditions I Mr. Lougheed said. Re insisted on seeing every- thing in the school, even the most retarded patients and called the visit one of the most important aspects of his cabi- net's tour of central Alberta. Mr. Crawford said a year's planning would ordinarily be needed before reconstruction could be started on 200 accom- modation spaces to replace old facilities at the school. How- ever, he would try to cut the time for planning and con- struction in half.
