Two cities that are likely to attract many of the arrivals from Uganda, Leicester and Birmingham, appealed lo the government lo keep them away. Both already have large colored populations, and the lo- cal authorities said their over- taxed social services cannot cope with more people. President Idi Amin of Uganda has ordered the ex- pulsion of Uganda's Asians by mid-November because the Af- rican population resents their domination of the former Brit- ish colony's commercial life and wants it for themselves. A handful ol the refugees have al- ready arrived in London, and some reported Ihey were, stripped at Ihe Kampala air- port of the liitle money they were told they could take out. The British government while carrying on negotiations with about 20 other countries seek- ing to have them accept some of the refugees, has said it is obligated lo accept those with British passports. Economic problems are ag- jravating the Asian immigra- ion issue. Britain now has 23 unemployed, the highest ince 1939. Many persons also say the country, with a popu- ation of 55 million, already has oo many people. Britain has been accepting 500 Asian families or about from the East African countries of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania, all former colonies. Kenyu and Tanzania have about British Asians scheduled to leave, but they have agreed to phased plan to meet with Britain's quota.

Last lay, the government did noth- ng to continue these tax reaks, but granted manufac- uring and processing in- uslries other substantial tax illowances. Mr. Stanfield opened the 40- minute question period during he emergency silting called to deal with the British Cohimbla lock strike with a question to he government about "contin- uing high unemployment." Later, he asked whether the government is planning any winter works programs to deal with the problem. TALKED TO PROVINCES Mr. Turner said the govern- ment has had a number of :alks with the provinces, but that he would let Manpower Minister Bryce Mackasey make any announcements on such a program sometime in the fu- ture. Mr. Stanfield also got in a dig at the prices and incomes com- mission, which submitted its fi- nal report earlier this week. Would- the winding up of the commission help stop the con- tinuing rise in the cost of liv- ing?
