Lawyer members of the opposition have ex- pressed hope that this prohibition will be a fore-runner to prohibiting the use of such other things as evidence gathered when police enter a home illegally. Mr. Lang was successful in achieving a compromise with Mr. Atkey in another area. The Conservative MP had feared that the language of the bill was so broad that it would permit wiretapping for minor and for crimes for which there is no justification for such as income tax evasion. Mr. Atkey proposed a long list of specific offences. Mr. Lang agreed and added more crimes to the list. The agreed list of 30 offences ends with the statement that bugging would be permitted if there are reasonable grounds to believe a .pattern of offences part of the activities of organized After the House votes on the various amendments the MPs will debate on third and final reading of the amended bill.
