MPs gave swift final reading to two lesser pieces of approved a third in principle and began debate on a fourth. Given final approval were a customs bill requiring ship captains to pay duties and tax- es on goods smuggled at sea and pilfered on and a bill to give co-operative credit associations more flexibility. A Senate enabling Can- ada to comply with an inter- national aircraft agreement signed in was given sec ond reading and second- reading debate .was started on another Senate create 10 more national parks. When the House launches into the proposed Foreign In- vestment Review Act Monday it must decide on the merits of 10 amendments. Because of debate promises to be long and heated.

The bill would place controls on takeovers of Cana- dian companies and screen ex- pansion of foreign interests into new business ventures. The customs bill was brought to the House because there is no law to hold vessel masters accountable for duty and taxes owing on smuggled or irregularly- delivered goods. The amendments to the Co- operative Credit Associations Act broaden the investment powers of co-operative credit bringing them into line with trust and loan companies and federally- chartered banks.

The in the form of a draft is not a formal ad- ministration proposal as evidently for two reasons. One is that the energy policy office couldn't get enough support for it within the executive branch. The Capitol Hill sources is a desire to let an emergency bill go through the legislative process as a measure that originated with the Democratic not the administration. The outline of the Emergency Energy the senate interior committee yesterday by John A. the energy policy is so sweeping that it has no chance of anact- ment as a single ac- cording to congressional sources.

Some administration and congressional sources favor discouraging consumption by a quick and substantial increase in the federal gas- oline tax. perhaps 20 or 30 cents a gallon.
