E. C. Kurd, president of the now-dormant Mackenzie Valley Pipe Line Research Ltd., said Thursday he plans to check with federal officials on whether there is more to the issue than just talk.

Merchant Bank may be formed VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia government add the B.C. Central Credit Union have been discussing jointly sponsoring a Merchant Bank to offer low interest roans, says George May, general manager of the credit union. Mr. May said today that in view of the federal government's intention to change the Bank Act to permit provincial governments to own up to 25 per cent of the shares of a bank, the govern- ment and B.C. Central will probably meet soon to discuss the specifics of setting up a Merchant Bank. Mr. May's statements follow comments Monday by Premier Dave Barrett that chartered banks charge huge interest rates'on loans', and reap-usurious profits. The premier, on a two-week public relations tour of the province, added that it was time the banks had some competition. A Merchant Bank would not accept deposits from the public, but would raise money through the money markets as well as taking deposits from .government departments and government corporations, Mr. May said.
