Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Sisters protest outlawing of IRA LONDON (AP) Two Irish sisters serving life sentences for terror bombings in London went on a hunger strike Fri- day as the British Parliament outlawed the Irish Republican Army Police prepared for a swift roundup of IRA suspects and sympathizers throughout Eng- land and Wales. They were armed with increased emer- gency powers rushed into law in an all-night sitting by British lawmakers. Dolours Price, 23, and her sister Marion, 20, began refus- ing food at breakfast time in London's Brixton prison, of- ficials said, because Home Secretary Roy Jenkins barred their transfer to a jail in Northern Ireland to serve their sentences in their homeland. They were convicted a year ago of taking part in a series of bombings in London in March, 1973, in which one man died and more than 200 per- sons were injured. Both were admitted IRA members. They called off a 205-day hunger strike June 7 after receiving Jenkins' assurance they would serve the bulk of their sentences in Northern Ireland if violence did not increase. Jenkins told the House of Commons on Thursday, how- ever, he was not prepared to order the transfer of the sisters because of renewed terrorist bombings. Bombs in Birmingham last week killed 20 and maimed scores and in London this week injured 24. NOT FULFILLED Jenkins told the Commons during the marathon debate on the anti-terrorism.bill the transfer of the Price sisters had been conditioned on "no great outbreak of violence or deterioration in the security situation" and he added: "These conditions have clear- ly not been fulfilled." The legislation, which re- ceived the assent of the Queen in making it law early Friday proscribes the IRA for the first time in Britain although it has been outlawed in both the Irish Republic and in Northern Ireland for many years.

Mun Air travellers going to U.S. won't be hit by new tax LAKEVIEW DRUG LTD. 1017 Mayor Magrath Drive Phone 328-5509 OTTAWA (CP) Air trav- ellers buying tickets in Canada for trips entirely in the United States will not be hit by the Canadian air tran- sport tax which takes effect Sunday. Transport Minister Jean Marchand announced Friday that the per cent of the ticket price to a maximum on flights within Canada and the U.S. and on other international not apply to trips entirely outside Canada. Edward Bryant, general manager of the American Society of Travel Agents- Canada said travel agents have been ask- ing the minister for changes for some days. They were concerned that the Canadian tax on flights en- tirely in the U.S., added to the eight-per-cent American tax, would amount to double taxa- tion of air travellers. For example, a ticket sold by a travel agent in Windsor, Ont., to a person flying from Detroit to Chicago will not carry the Canadian tax. But Mr. Bryant said a person flying to New York from Montreal, switching to a flight to Chicago and then returning to Montreal would have to pay the Canadian tax for the entire flight. Such a trip was considered a "con- tinuous flight" from Canada to the U.S. and back. PROTECT TRAVELLERS Mr. Marchand said in his statement that the change in the tax plan is in the best interests of the Canadian traveller. It would also "protect the interests of Canadian travel agents who would otherwise lose a con- siderable amount of travel business." The tax is designed to pay part of the annual deficit shouldered by the government in operating airports. It amounted to million in the 1973-74 financial year. The new tax is expected to bring in million in the first full year.
