Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-Wednesday, November 20, 1974 billion project proposal El Paso application for natural gas pipeline dismissal urged WASHINGTON (CP) The U S. interior department suggested today dismissal oi El I'aso Alaska Co.'s application to build a billion "all-American" natural gas pipeline on the grounds that the application is "in- complete. In a letter made public today, the depart- ment suggested El I'aso be given 15 days to file lor Alaska rights-of-way permits through the interior department, Should the company tail, "we request that the Federal Power Commission (FPC) dis- miss their application or take such other ac- tion as is the letter states. Kl Paso said it would appeal against the suggestion through the KPC El Paso has applied to the KPC for a "cer- tificate of public convenience and necessity" covering an 800-mile natural gas line from Prudhoe Bay south across Alaska to a proposed tanker ter- minal at Valdez. The application is in competition with one from a Canada-U.S. con- sortium which pro- poses to tap the north slope field with a line south through Canada. The FPC has called for comments and suggestions on the interior department's stand concerning El Paso and set a deadline of Dec. 3. John Whitaker, Canadian-born under- secretary of the interior, in his letter to FPC Secretary Kenneth Plumb, states: "El Paso Alaska has informed Interior that no application for rights-of-way or tem- porary land-use permits have been or will be made to this de- partment unless and un- til El Paso Alaska has first been granted an FPC certificate of public convenience and necessity.

Inflation rate to be steady MONTREAL (CP) An economic analyst predicted today that Canada's inflation rate will run at about seven per cent during the next four years. Dr. J. C. R. Rowley, of the Economic Council of Canada, told an investors' conference sponsored by the Financial Post that Canadians will never see inflation dip below five per cent from its current 11 per cent rate. Carl Beigie, executive director of Montreal's C.D. Howe Research Institute, told the conference that for infla- tion to drop to eight per cent, as has been predicted by economists in Ottawa, wage rate increases would have to be reduced to a 10 per cent maximum from the 15 per cent increases awarded in re- cent Canadian labor contracts. "Canada must come to grips with Mr. Beigie said, adding that Mon- day's federal budget would help alleviate the problem. Robert de Cotret, vice- president of the Conference Board of Canada, said the budget indicates increased government expenditure can be expected. "This will no doubt be a very supportive element for economic activity in he said. Mr. de Cotret agreed that the inflation rate would drop to eight per cent by mid-1975 but said any major recovery of the world economy cannot be expected before that time. He predicted "real growth in the Canadian economy in the range of one or two per cent" in 1975. Indian royalties bill okayed OTTAWA (CP! A bill to increase royalties on oil and gas produced on Indian lands received approval in the Com- mons Indian affairs com- mittee Tuesday. The bill now returns to the House for third reading. Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan has said royalties on Indian oil and gas were raised on an interim basis by regulations following price upheavals in the inter- national oil industry. But further legislation was needed to ensure that native people continue to receive fair returns. He said the new royalty structure would increase revenue to Indians to million this year from million in 1973. The committee also approv- ed a propped amendment to existing legislation that would the Yukon and Northwest Territories the power to tap government funds when the Jerritona! governments suffer fire losses. The amendment would eliminate the necessity by the territories of paying fire in- surance premiums to private insurers Sod-turning IWMBOLDT, Sask.
