Food-price picture isn't sweet Arch-villains can't be found By JEAN SHARP CP Women's Editor TORONTO Although the federal government's food prices review board has not iden- tified any it does not believe the food-price pic- ture is flooded with sweetness and the board's chairman said Tuesday. In a speech to the Canadian Institute on Public Membership hiked for arole board OTTAWA With Con- servatives saying the govern- ment is not going far or fast the Commons justice committee approved a bill Tuesday that would increase the National Parole Board to 19 from nine members. Solicitor-General Warren Allmand said the move is necessary to help overcome the backlog before the provide for regionalization of the board's activities and to provide a substitute system of parole to overcome a system of penitentiary leaves of ques- tionable legality that was end- ed in the spring. He said after the committee meeting that the enlarged board would help relieve over- crowding in penitentiaries be- cause it would be in a position to deal with prisoners who should be paroled. The present overworked nine-man board could not han- dle their cases. He said it is hoped the new board members would be cho- sen from police or other professionals who would acquire long-term leaves of absence from their jobs. If that was possible the pro- fessionals could give their ex- perience to the parole board and then bring their parole ex- perience back to the regular employment. He told Albanie Morin Louis that he is hop- ing to appoint more women parole officers. While there was no opposi- tion to the two Conser- vatives said the government has not done enough in parole reform. Reg Stackhouse Scarborough and Allan Lawrence Northumberland said Mr. Allmand must bring in more reform. Beryl Plumptre said it seems possible that some marketing boards are still operating on the assumption that foodstuffs are not in short supply. That might mean the boards would be restricting production to maintain high prices. She said when the board completed its cross-country investigation of food it discovered 100 cases of ap- parently illegal practices. Mrs Plumptre said the board met with retailers in August and they agreed to dis- continue the practice of dou- ble a new price tag over an older one on merchandise She said the September check showed not all stores were honoring the undertaking and as a they will have only themselves to blame if pro- posed legislation is passed making double ticketing il- legal.
