The government withheld the payments, which helped farm- ers with the cost of storing grain in elevators, while the stabilization act was consider- ed. The act was to eliminate the wheat reserves payments ret- roactively and substitute trans- itional payments during 'the changeover period, Payments have since been niaoe. Mr. Runciman said the retro- active aspect would have work- erf well had the stabilisation bill passed within a few months. But cncc the reserves pay- ments were "a full year in ar- rears what happened was inevitable."

OF .NATIONAL IMPORTANCE j "The encouragement Of Can- ada's international corporations in their efforts to expand world markets is of the greatest na- tional iniporliince and the high- est the committee I said. "Any measures such as those 1 contained in the proposed legis- 1 lation which inhibit these efforts are to he deplored, particularly in view of the fact that these j proposals run counter to the patterns being set by other de- j velopecl nations." The committee rejected the government's contention that stiffcr tax laws arc needed to ensure Canadian-based firms do 1 not escape taxes by putting their money in foreign tax ha- ve: is. The stiffer tax laws could re- sult in a Canadian-based corpo- i ration being taxed for legiti- I mate business income earned j by a foreign affiliate of that cor- j poration, the committee said. Existing legislation was suffi- cient to block cases of tax avoidance by Canadian firms cli- ''erting their earnings to other i countries. "Failure to block such abuses, t if they exist, is due more to lack i of enforcement of existing law i than to lack of legislation." The committee also recom- mended lhat all dividends paid to corporations in Canada by foreign affiliates continue to be exempt from tax. The tax bill would impose taxes on such dividends in cer- tain cases if the foreign affiliate is in a country that has no tax treaty with Canada. hv women DUNCAN, B.C. :CP' When the Jiniici- Chamber of Commerce amended its na- tional constitution in July to permit women membership, it just a token move, says Regional Director Keith Jone.s.
