The cork is the proposed legislation to establish a screening mechanism for out- side investment and to restrict development of foreign companies already well established here. A series of opposition amendments to the bill should be voted on today before it moves out of the report stage and into third-reading the last move before Senate approval and royal assent make it law.

Angry Conservative MP causes Commons uproar OTTAWA An angry outburst led Conservative John Ltindrigan to the verge of suspension from- the Com- mons Monday but it was unl.f clear whether the New-f foundland MP actually had used unparliamentary language.

The Speaker said he would see today what Mr. Lundrigan wants to do about the situation He had no comment when told later that the ex- pression did not appear in the Hansard draft. The dispute erupted when Mr Lundrigan Said Mr Davis had misled the House and the people of Newfoundland on a new licensing system for fish- ermen He stuck to his guns both in- side the Commons and in a television interview room where he charged Mr. Davis had done a masterful job of speaking through both sides of his Mr. Davis said Lundrigan is determined to make a case that my policy is restrictive. He wants to cast us in a very bad Mr. Lundrigan said later he would .not try to prolong the incident today. Mr. Lundrigan said he is fighting over the issue of ac- countability of ministers to the House the Speaker is caught in a crossfire with the Mr. Davis' statement last week about the licensing system described it as an ex- pansionary move to develop under-exploited species and protect those overexploited.

CALGARY Guards used tear gas to quell a demonstration by 80 cellblock prisoners Monday at the Calgary Correctional In- stitute. The prisoners had occupied the cellblock Sunday after- noon and had refused to return to their Warden James Jackson said. They had been let out of their cells to watch the Western Football Conference final game on television. The prisoners were forced back to their cells when guards fired two tear gass cannisters into the he said. They were told to return to their cells before the gas was used. Tear gas was used because time had come when someone had to call a halt to this the warden said. prisoners are just testing us to see how far they can When the prisoners refused to budge the guards were sent in to get 26 who had court he said.

The system keeps bat- teries and electronic equip- ment from burning out. It became inoperable during the Skylab 2 mission in August and that crew switched to a backup loop The secondary system also has a small leak and might also have given out within a few weeks. Loss of both cooling loops would result in early termina- tion of the said flight director Neil Hutchinson. Skylab 3 astronauts Gerald Carr and Edward Gib- son carried a repair kit and extra cooling fluid when they rocketed up to the orbiting laboratory last Friday. The fix-it job was to have .taken two hours. But Pogue had trouble punching a hole in the coolant line and in check- ing for leaks in the repair lines and it took him four. Hutchinson said that when the secondary loop leaks down to a certain pressure it too will be reserviced. Another bonus from the re- pair work is that astronauts Pogue and Gibson will take only one space walk this week instead of two. The system also cools suits worn during space and without two loops working the astronauts would have to use air cooling which is less efficient and limits outside work to about four hours at one time. Pogue and Gibson have about 6Vi hours of work plann- ed during a walk Thursday.

Direct foreign corporate in- the federal statistics bureau rose by billion in 1970 to a total of billion. Other foreign holdings are estimated at dou- ble that figure. The non-corporate in- vestments are portfolio stock- holdings of own- ership of bonds issued by all levels of mortgages and miscellaneous property. The jump in foreign capital in 1970 was described as the largest in and foreign invest- ment has grown since then. For said the Bank of foreign ownership of provincial and municipal bonds rose by billion to billion between 1969 and 1971. Japan has almost certainly tripled its 1970 Canadian cor- porate investment of million. The Canada-Japan Trade Council puts the 197S figure at million. Coal power suggested EDMONTON Premier Peter Lougheed has suggested the city consider running its power plants with coal rather than natural gas. He made the statement in connection with a recent Energy Resources Conserva- tion Board report that said it is wasteful to fuel power plants with natural gas when coal is available in abun- dance.
