Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Ceasefire Extension Sought UNITED NATIONS (CP) -The 127-country General Assembly is expected to agree next week that the Middle East ceasefire should be extended. It also is expected to make a renewed call on Israel to withdraw from Arab lands captured in the 1967 Middle East war and strongly calls for resumption of peace talks under Gunnar Jarring. It will reiterate that Security Council Resolution 242 of November, 1967, is the . basis for all peace negotiations. Last major speaker of the week was Jacob Malik, Soviet ambassador, who demanded immediate withdrawal of Israeli troops from Arab territories and immediate resumption of the Jarring mission. He charged that Israel is violating Resolution 242 by boycotting that mis' sion.

The commission comprises Speaker Lucien Lamoureux, chairman, and three cabinet ministers, who are changed frequently. It says the staff of Commons committees has been increased by 22 persons.

Britain Tightens Oil Spill Rules BIG LAND The Yukon and Northwest Territories occupy 39 per cent of the surface of Canada. LONDON (AP) - The British government, alarmed by pollution of its coasts by oil, moved speedily in Parliament Friday to impose tighter controls on ships discharging fuel into the sea. The oil pumped into the sea in the normal course of ship operation "accounts for the unspec-t: 'jular coastal pollution distinct from that caused by disasters," John Grant, undersecretary for trade and industry, told the House of Commons. The bill would enable the government to put into effect changes agreed in the international convention for the prevention of pollution of the sea by oil. The bill was given preliminary approval. Maximum fine on summary conviction for polluting the sea was increased to $12,000 from $2,400. Grant told the House many ships had discovered ways of evading the international convention and "we actually see some of them doing this. But it is rarely possible to prosecute sucesfully for offences outside territorial waters." LABOR GIVES SUPPORT Roy Mason, board of trade minister under the Labor government, supported the Conservative government bill but said his "major concern is with strandings and collisions, typified by the Torrey Canyon and, more recently, the Pacific Glory." "Britain, more than any other country, is the chief sufferer from tanker mishaps," he said, adding that there are about 110 strandings and collisions of oil tankers yearly "Statistics show that one in 10 occurs in our coastal seaways." While the Commons discussed the tougher oil pollution bill, a Dutch salvage company pumped oil from the grounded RAPESEED GROWERS NOTE With recently expanded facilities, Western Canadian Seed e  Processors Ltd. now offers Supply Contracts for non-contracted Rapeseed produced in 1970.
