Mr. Trudeau refused to an- wer in the Commons later if he tould accept the invitation. The roposal had been opposed by .he Liberals. While the NDP's defeated mo- ion calling for a reconstituted xwrd with power to roll back nd cancel price increases, Con- servatives concentrated on in- requency of the number of meetings held by the board and ts alleged lack of a sense of urgency. The full board has only held ,hree meetings since its ap- p o i n t m e n last was Wednesday night. James McGrath (PC-St. John's East) said he had the mpression the board did not stir into action until mid-Au- gust, amid reports that some [ood retailers were changing prices on on-shelf foods. NO SUPPORT Later, he said the Con- servatives, with reluctance were not going to support the NDP motion to dismantle the existing committee because his party felt food prices could not be looked at in isolation. After Stan Darling (PC- Parry Sound-Muskoka) asked why the board had not met more often, Mrs. Plumptre said there could have been more meetings but there would have been nothing to talk about. "We want to meet when we know we have something impor- tant to Mrs. Plumptre said. "Give us a chance to get on with our work." The board members gamed support from Liberal MPs, in- cluding committee chairman Bud Cullen bton) who said some of the crit- icism is unfair. In introducing the NDP mo- tion. Terry Grier (Toronto- Lakeshore) a renovated food prices lew board could be provided I ilh muscle needed to back up investigations. He added the NDP did not preclude the firing of Mrs. Plumptre and other board members if such action is required. Mr McGrath brought in the motion calling for an invitation o the Prime minister to ap- pear. Alf Cleave (NDP-Saska- oon-Biggar) suggested Otto Lang, minister in charge of the vheat board, and other minis- ers should be added to the list called before the committee. Mr. Cullen said the prime minister would make the final decision whether or not to ap- pear before the committee. The matter would be referred to a steering committee to consider how the prime minister would be asked, Mr. Cullen added later in the Commons. But it is doubtful Mr. Trudeau will come to the committee. Liberals say his appearance could set a "dangerous prece- dent" with the prime minister hopping committee meeting to another. Earlier in the committee hearing, Mrs. Plumptre noted that the board had obtained agreement from major food retailers that consumers would pay the lowest price if more than one ticket is on goods in a store She told the committee that a staff of researchers would be available to check indi-ldual food pnces in future and con- sumers would be able to regis- ter complaints with them.
