The machinery includes a coun- cil of Maritime premiers, a Maritime provinces commission of experts and a joint legislative assembly. The report recommends that such tricky subjects as the capi- tal of the new province, its name, the design of its flag and guage be left until later.

Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pe- pin told the Commons the shirts have been gathering in customs and excise warehouses since June 2 when the govern- ment imposed a surtax on the imports to protect Canadian shirtrnakers. Many of the im- ports had been in transit when the protective measure was or- dered. Since then, he said, import- ers have been holding back in anticipation of the Nov. 29 ex- piry date of the surtax. To pre- vent a release of tie shirts that would disrupt the market at this tims he asked for a one- year extension of the special duty. APPROVED BY SENATE The Senate also approved the extension. The surtax was adopted June 2 in an effort to hold shirt im- ports to the same level as in 1969, about 1.2 million dozen. Mr. Pepin told Hie Commons that some countries, such as Japan, had agreed to a volun- tary restraint on exports to Canada but new producers had invaded the market and were pushing up imports by close to 15 per cent. The result was further pres- sure on the Canadian industry which has been in decline since 1966.
