Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Ottawa-style Watergate biWs target iMOT TNI unmmiai HIMIO Winter election campaign seen as 'boon9 to NDP By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA The bill that seeks to prevent a Cana- dian Watergate comes before the Commons this week for third and final reading.' Presuming the Senate can act with fair the Inva- sion of Privacy Act which seeks to outlaw most wiretapping and restrict the could become law before the end of the year. If that is the debate that has spread over 2 Vt years and that has seen the govern- ment bring in two bills in an attempt to satisfy diverse criticism will 'have borne fruit. The present con- siderably amended since it was introduced in the spring during an almost non-partisan discussion in the Commons justice still may not be out of the woods. Liberal sources said Friday that Justice Minister Otto Lang still had not made clear whether he would seek to amend the bill to undo some of the work of the committee. At the same Con- servatives were split on the with some wanting to strengthen its anti-tap provi- sions and some not comfor- table with its present strength. There were reports that there .could be some Conservative attempt at amendment. WILL GO ALONG Liberals also displayed a split in feelings during com- mittee but it is reported they will go along with whatever Mr. Lang decided to do in the interests of getting some kind of wiretap bill through Parlia- ment this session. The bill basically outlaws most electronic bugging by any but police and provides penalties for violation of the law. In most instances police would require the permission of a judge to although there is a .provision for emergency wiretapping to which both Conservatives and New Democrats object and which both may try to change. The most controversial part of the whole wiretapping ques- tion is the use of indirect evi- dence. The bill originally said that evidence obtained from an illegal wiretap cannot be used in court. But it said if. infor- mation from such an illegal tap leads police to other that evidence can be used in a prosecution. REMOVED CLAUSE The committee removed the indirect evidence provision and a cry of protest Was heard across the country from provincial attorneys- cry the Conser- vatives and New Democrats refused to heed in committee. Mr. Lang has indicated he would like to ask the Com- mons to reinstate the indirect evidence clause. He said at one time he would move an amendment in the Commons but later he started hedging and by Friday plans were unknown. If there are no serious at- tempts to change the bill in Commons it is expected to get through fairly rapidly. But serious amendments could cause a prolonged debate. Before the Commons gets to the wiretap bill it has to finish its current debate on the for- eign investment bill. The Commons has a raft of amendments before some of them radical. It is expected that it will take a minimum of two days to deal with the bill and debate could last up to four meaning that wiretapping may not reach the House before Friday.

'Peaceful revolution' Self-rule proposed for Scottish By JOHN ALLAN MAY Christian Science Monitor England One way or another the various peoples of the United otherwise called Great are going to get a form of self-rule again. This seems certain follow- ing the publication here of the massive report of the Com- mittee on the which has been pondering the question since 1969. Politically it is sensational news It means major changes in the British Con- stitution. It may sometimes be forgotten that the U.K. is an amalgam of a number of different nations the the the Welsh to a certain or uncertain some of the Irish. In spite of a long and close each nation has preserved it own although the English perhaps to a lesser extent than the others. through a series of historical and con- stitutional and Wales have been denied separate parliaments for some cen- while Northern the Isle of and the islands of and Sark have been accorded them. As a fringe areas have enjoyed -a 'considerable measure of while the mam constituent countries of the U.K. have not. Virtually all political and economic power in the major British has been concentrated in and around London. And now some is moving outward to Brussels. In Scotland and in Wales vigorous nationalist groups have consequently demanding home rule. The Republic of Ireland's claim to all Ireland also has to be seen within the same context. And to all this is added an' ever-louder clamor for greater by in- dividuals and localities in the whole process of government. The conclusion of the main body of royal commissioners now is that there should be an overall devolution of and ad- ministration powers to regional although within the present framework of the United Kingdom. Scotland and Wales would have with specific areas of interest and power. But or the several different regions of would not have a separate legislature. Here there would be only ad- ministrative devolution. Both separatism and federalism are rejected. But two members of the 16- strong commission also have issued a 200-page memoran- dum of dissent. They are Lord Oxford political and Prof. Alan T. English economist. They want a more thorough going -revision of the British Constitution. They advocate seven democratically elected assemblies beneath the central Parliament at West- minster one for each of Scotland and Wales and one each for five regions of England. These would take over' control of virtually all the out- posts of central government now operating in their areas regional administrative of- health water gas and electrici- ty departments of .employment and regional and so forth. v They would be elected under a system of proportional and minority groups everywhere would be associated with decision making at this level. The two dissenters then urge rejuvenation of a through a system of functional committees. Two main aims of the committee it is would be to associate in- dividual M.P.s more closely with the policy-forming process and to keep a close democratic watch on the ac- tivities of the European authorities in Brussels. If any of the recommen- dations of the or of the is accepted it obviously will mean a major constitutional change for the U.K. If many it will mean something akin to a peaceful revolution.
