Under new immigration rcgu- latioiw published Tuesday, Commonwealth citizens wishing to live and work in Britain will be permitted entry for a max- imum of 12 montlis for a par- ticular job with a specified em- ployer. They will also require work permits. At the end of the 12-month period, a Commonwealth citi- zen may apply fer further one- year extensions as is the case now with aliens here, A home office spokesman said the "nature of employment and continuity of residence" will be crucial factors in the decision for such extensions. new regulations, p u b- lishsd under existing legisla- tion, take effect at the moment Britain officially joins the Eu- ropean Common Market Jan. 1. From that time, citizens of the other eight countries in the enlarged community will free to enter Britain and take jobs here merely by producing a passport or identity card. They will be given five-year renewable residence permits. Prior to Canadians and most other Commonwealth citi- zens were allowed free access to work hi Britain without tlie need for visas or work permits.

His car was discovered near Ponoka, 55 mites south of Ed- monton, shortly after the acci dent but there had been nc trace the body and a search was started. An RCMP spokesman said the cause of death was not im mediately determined and an autopsy had been ordered. but Commonwealth citi- ens have continued to enjoy 3Ccial consideration. Employment vouchers have en relatively easy to obtain or citizens of the old Com- Australia New :iem to work in Britain for iui ndefinite period. Recently, however, Immigra- lon authorities have insisted noro and more on issuing ei- lier three-year or 12-month i-ork permit's which are renew- ible. A home office spokesman aid that under the new rules, f a Commonwealth citizen 1; emitted to stay for four yean n the same job by obtaining successive permit renewals, he vould (lien be eligible to appl> or removal of all restriction? on his term of employment and residence.

On housing, the party said land costs have spiralled to the point where home ownership is beyond the reach of many Ca- nadians. A Conservative gov- ernment would set up a federal fund wilh provincial participa- tion to help establish residential land bank -agencies throughout Canada, The party also said a Con- servative government would re- view with Ihe provinces the fed- eral role hi inter-city trans- portation. This would be aimed at providing cheaper trans- port a lion within and between cities. H also would seek ways of easing financial problems fac- 'ig municipalities, "The heavy dcpendctice of municipal governments en property taxes to finance their programs has placed an undue burden upon property owners and tenants, as well as upon the municipalities themselves." On transportation, Hie party favored a complete review of transportation needs with the prcvir.ccG. A Conservative gov- ernment would undertake to provide economic freight rales for transporting farm products. The party said it would also bring in a new roads-to-rc- sources pi tin Unking southern anada with the North.
