O By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CD Federal government outlays in grants and contributions to industry under the Department of Re- gional Economic Expansion have risen so far this fiscal year by 16 per cent, latest fig- ures from (tie treasury show. But government sources say the amount to which the gov- ernment Iras already com milled itself in DREE grants will mean a far greater in- crease when ttic government is called on to pay the shot. DREE grants announced ev- ery week or so by the depart- ment are only undertakings bj the government that it will pay out funds for job-creating in dustrial expansion when new plants or extensions have been completed. On large projects, there may be a time lag of one or twr years between the time th commitment is made and She funds have to be paid out bj the treasury.

He said such facilities would protect the Russian people Iron- what appears to be cyclical crop failures. To get the Russians over their current wheat shortage the Canadian wheat board should be asked to sell what- ever wheat can be spared from this year's wheat crop.

Each year, when he presents the government's spending esti- mates to the Commons, the president of the treasury boart or the minister of finance has to make a long explanation o! how heavy a burden these corn mitments are. More than half the budge each year is plready authorized for spending by previously passed statutes. Another large chunk of it is determined by previously-made commitment that gear spending to the coun try's growth, or some such fac lor.
