Asked about the amendments to Ihe Mediation Commission Act, Mr. Barrett said further comment would be provided by Labor Minister William King when the bill is introduced in the house. He would only say that the three-man mediation commis- sion would be eliminated along with Ihc controversial section ta and 19 of the act which1 allowed the B.C. government to order an end to lockouts and strikes and make a commission decision final and binding "in order to protect the public in- terest and welfare."

Bodley Scott, Gfryear-old sen- ior physician at St. Bartholo- mew's (Bart's) Hospital in Lon- don, referred to the chance of a leukemia cure in the inaugural lecture at a nursing conference here.
