Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Heath locus of attack BLACKPOOL, England (AP) The Conservative party is assembling for its annual con- vention with Prime Minister Edward Healh the focus of po- litical attack. But tlic 56-year-old bachelor's leadership seems safe despite embittered righl-and left-wing charges tliat his government lias failed to live up to its Con- servative faith. The critics range from Enoch Powell on the far right to younger Conservatives who ad- vance a leftist case. They have been publicly as- sailing Heath for what they see as his failure to check rampant inflation, non-white immigra- tion, a decline in law and order and his resolve to lead the country into the European Common Market. These developments face Heath as party workers headed toward tlus north western coastal resort for the tair-day discussion of policies. HEATH CONFIDENT Healh and his fellow minis ters arrived here confident they can justify the performance o their government since i ousted Laborite Harold Wilso: in 1870. They inlend to go further b announcing major new policies These will range from mor effective protectio to curbs on food, housing an land prices plus a promise more and better schools an anti-pollution measures. At the centre of Heath's pn occupation is Britain's slatec entry into the Common Marke Jan. 1. The nation's salvation, he h. long held, depends on ident ing itself with a new power ase which, he says, only West uropc can provide. There has been a swing mong Conservative voters gainst membership with most vorlng a national ballot on le issue, polls show. Powell will lead Ihc anli-Mar- eteers' attack on British en- s'. IANY CONDUCTS The two men differ on most hings-lhe management of the conomy, defence policy, the lominon Market and the iinmi- EDWARD HEATH seems safe ation of non-wliitcs, particu- rly of Uganda's expelled Brit- i Asians. On immigration, Powell ants all non-whites barred om entering Britain and has trecast racial clashes. Healh, however, says this is ure prejudice, and accuses his ritic of stirring up racism. But Heath's critics go far be- ond Powell. Many are unhappy with the overnment's handling of the rish situation and fear civil 'ar there is approaching. Others have been assailing Jeath's economic policies ar- uing they are beginning more nd more to resemble those of Vilson's Socialist government. But in the end, faced with the llernative of seeing power slip nto the hands of Wilson's left- earning Socialists, no Con- servative would willingly act to undermine the prospects of leath's government.

Water plant opposition is expected By GLENNIS ZILM OTTAWA (CP) Demands by Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. that the government start shortly on new heavy water plants are expected to be re- sisted by the science ministry. A recent science ministry study terms overly pessimistic AECL recommendations for work lo start on the new plants within 18 months. The study says no new pro- duction facilities are needed un- Ul the 1990s for heavy water, useil in producing nuclear-gen- erated power. That would mean deferring a decision on more production capacity for two years or more. The study has not yet been made public. Science ministry sources say the need now is more con- sultation with AECL, a Crown corporation, and the depart- ment of energy, mines and re- sources. H is known that tiie study also recommends any new heavy water production plan- ning be based on a new manu. acturmg process. In [his respect, the science ministry study is in step with last week's AECL announce- ment of an agreement with Polymer Corp. Ltd. to work on two such new methods. TO TAKE LEAD Polymer, another Crown agency, is to take the lead in development work and build and operate experimental facil- ities at Sarnia. "Expenditures in the order of SI million to million a year are expected if the processes being developed continue to ap- pear AECL said last week. As well, the science ministry study recommends a decision be made now on construction of a new, large-scale nuclear pilot plant that uses heavy water only as a moderator and not as at the Sarnia plant have poten- tial advantages of lower capital costs, lower energy con- sumption, smaller equipment, [ess corrosion and no need to use hydrogen sulphide, an AECL news release said. WATER SCARCE AECL has 11 Candu reactors either operating, under con- struction or committed by 1979, but these have been plagued by shortages of heavy water, J. Lome Gray, AECL presi- dent, told a Commons com- mittee earlier this year that an j extra S30 million has Ijeen paid j since 1968 to run plants despite shortages. More than tons have been bought from foreign sources including the U.S., the Soviet Union and Britain. Costs ran about a pound or about 512 higher than prices expected if Canadian plants had been operating as sched- uled. U.S. prices recently rose to a pound. Canada's shortages were compounded by failure of a heavy water plant at Glace Bay, N.S., to go into production as scheduled in The plant, originally built by Deuterium of Canada, Ltd., a private firm, was taken over by the provin- cial government and now is leased to AECL. It now is expected to be oper- ating by 1975. BELOW CAPACITY There also have been produc- tion problems at the Canadian General Electric plant at Port Haukesbury, N.S., now oper- aling at 60 per cent capacity. An AECL plant near Kincar- dine, Ont., is expected to be op- eraling late tins labor disputes with Ontario Hydro arc ssys an AECL source. L. R.
