Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wtdnwday, October 31, 1973 Consumer protection promised for Britains By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) As the Queen inaugurated the new Parliament Tuesday with all the theatrical glamor that attends the autumn state opening, she unveiled a government program full of vote wooing measures for the last full session before a general election. Prime Minister Edward Heath, who won election in 1970 largely on the shopping- basket vote with a promise to cut prices, will clearly attempt to entice disillusioned housewives back to the Conservative fold. The speech from the throne, written by the government, proposed measures to outlaw sex discrimination, provide greater consumer protection, fight pornography and pollu- tion and bring in a tax-credit plan whereby mothers will directlv receive allowances for each child, including the first. The speech, as expected, also contained a pledge that the government would initiate major reforms in company law, thus beginning a process of scrubbing what Heath has termed "the unacceptable face of capitalism." Heath used the now-famous phrase in the most bitter at- tack any Tory leader has made on the captains of British finance after a business scandal disclosed in- stances of high living and tax evasion on the part of senior executives. The speech also contained a government pledge to eradicate "malad- ministration" in local piece of legislation arising from re- cent unsavory disclosures of kickbacks among local dignitaries. The government also has moved to appease voters' dis- enchantment with the effects of Britain joining the Euro- pean Common ly seen here as a cause of higher promising to champion the individual "whether as citizen or con- sumer" along with pledging full co-operation with other Common Market countries in progressing towards economic and monetary un- ion. The Queen, the huge dia- monds of the imperial state crown winking in the stagey lighting over the throne, and flanked by Prince Charles in crimson peer's robes and Princess Anne in white, began her nine-minute reading with references to her forthcoming Commonwealth tours, including New Zealand for the Commonwealth Games. Dief captivates crowd with political anecdotes Longest serving Justice William Douglas reached a personal anc public milestone this week as he became the one mar to have served longest on the U.S. Supreme Court. He is shown in his early (1939) and later (1973) years on the highest court. Justice Douglas has exceeded the tenure of Justice Stephen Field, who retired in 1897. REGINA (CP) There will never be another Canadian prime minister who was a pioneer, John Diefenbaker told a captivated Conservative audience here this week. He alternated between humorous anecdotes and serious reminiscing as he spoke to 900 persons attending a dinner to mark the 33rd an- niversary of his first election as a Member of Parliament. Recalling his pioneer days, he said: "We were burned out, frozen out and snowed out. I saw the injustice against the farmer and I said someday I will do something to end that." Tn another serious moment, I he spoke of one experience as 'prime minister: "No one will ever know the nights of 196L and 1962 when alone I wondered whether we were approaching nuclear war." But there was also plenty of the Diefenbaker humor to delight the crowd, which dis- played signs like "John, our pride" and "still with you." Speaking to Regina Mayor Harry Walker, who was defeated in last week's municipal election, Mr. Diefenbaker said "1 was defeated when f ran for mayor of Prince Albert and look where I went." Election victory hailed by Socred House leader EDMONTON (CP) Premier Robert Bourassa's victory in the Quebec provin- cial election is strong Quebec support of confederation, says Alberta Social Credit House leader Robert Clark. But Mr. Clark warned the 30 per cent of the popular vote for the Parti Quebecois should not be overlooked by Premier Bourassa or leaders in the rest of Canada. Premier Peter Lougheed was not available for com- ment, but he is expected to send a telegram of congratulation to the Quebec Premier. Alberta Liberal leader Bob Russell said he is very pleased to see the Quebec people overwhelmingly support a "pro federalist" party.
