Outside the legislature, the minister said the government plans to study the Krauss-Maffei project data, but "I can't say there will ever be a delivery of this system." He said he cannot give an estimate of how much time or money it would take to get a magnetic levitation system into full production. The minister told the legislature the government is to get back the direct costs of the project so far. Krauss-Maffei already had turned over million as an interim payment. He admitted, however, that the future of the entire magnetic levitation the keystone of the government's billion urban transport in doubt. The minister told the legislature the Krauss-Maffei contract was cancelled as a result of a West German government deci- sion not to provide further long-range financing to the company He told reporters the decision by West Germany was taken because that government has changed its priorities in the field of long-range, high-technology development.

The government partially blocked the import of U.S. eggs between May and September this year to shore up domestic prices to farmers. Using Import and Export Permits Act legislation pass- ed in May, the government allowed importers to bring in only limited quantities of U.S. eggs, thus keeping up the price to both farmers and con- sumers. Imports in May. for in- stance, dropped to 3.51 million Starvation spreading in Bangladesh OTTAWA (CP) Starva- tion in Bangladesh is spreading by the hour, Thomas Kines, national direc- tor of CARE in Canada, said Wednesday as the in- ternational feeding and devel- oping agency announced a 000-ton wheat purchase to help offset the developing famine. The wheat, valued at is for use in mother- and-child feeding centres set up in the stricken East Asian country. "As always in such cases, the very old and the very young are dying in large numbers."

In July and August, imports dropped to eggs a month. Howver, in the same month, the domestic price to farmers for Grade A large eggs was 59 cents a dozen. In the U.S., the price was 42 cents a dozen. PUSHED UP PRICES Former consumer affairs minister Herb Gray said these figures confirmed food prices review board statements that the import controls pushed up the prices to consumers higher than they would have been had there been no controls. Mr. GiWespie said the deci- sion to impose the controls was taken after consultation with a number of government departments and that he was not solely responsible for the decision. Conservative "consumer critic James McGrath asked whether all these departments were satisfied that import restrictions on eggs were needed. The minister nodded yes. He added, however, that the government does not plan to impose controls on the import of eggs or any other food product in "an erratic, spasmodic" way. Rather, imports would have to have threatened a domestic farm industry for more than a month before the government would consider putting on re- strictions. The inquiry is being held in an effort to determine why 28 million eggs bought by CEMA during the summer as surplus were left to rot in improper storage MACLEOD SHELL SERVICE EQUIPMENT AUCTION SALE Saturday, Nov. 16 10a.m. Highway 3 west Fort Macleod, Alta.
