Men who refuse to work with the IRA or are found guilty of leaking secrets to security forces in Northern Ireland are sometimes stripped, burned with red-hot pokers, jabbed with live electric rods or have their paraffin-soaked trousers set on fire, the army says.

While the government has an- nounced that a three-man body will review the army's interro- gation methods. Home Secre- tary Reginald Maudling said it was necessary for the army to take "vigorous measures" to fight ruthless enemies. Both he and Defence Minister Lord Bal- niel emphasized that the IRA could not be treated with kid gloves.

The request to the Canadian transport commission asks that the rates become effective March 1, 1972.

The companies said in a joint statement the increases "are necessary to help offset the heavy capital costs of a continu- ous expansion program."
