Bui, the iVDF leader had at- tached no cost figure to his "large-scale program1' to pro- mote winter employment. He had called for a reduction of taxes when the government's tax change bill, currently at second reading in the Commons would remove a million people from the tax roles and reduce taxes for people. He had called for lower inter- est rates, bill short-term inter cst rates were currently at their lowest level since the early 1960s. He wanted more money for waste treatment plants. But he did not say how much more than the million the govern- ment has spent on such plants during the last 10 years. Robert Andras, minister ol state for urban affairs, concen- trated or.
