Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, September 7, 1973 bid ruled out in Commons OTTAWA (CP) A Con- servative attempt to have Solic- itor-General Warren Allmand cited for contempt of Parlia- ment was rejected Thursday night by Speaker Lucien La- moureux. The Conservatives had al- leged that Mr. Allmand acted improperly in commenting to the press on the theft of files from the Indian affairs depart- ment while the matter was un- der investigation by a Commons committee. But Mr. Lamoureux said he could find no parliamentary rule that Mr. Allmand had breached with his remarks. The last time an MP was cited for contempt was 1925, the Speaker said, an indication that such a serious charge is not to be treated lightly. The charges were made by Erik Nielsen who asked that Mr. Allmand's re- marks concerning police ques- tioning of a Conservative MP be referred to a Commons privi- leges committee. Police staff 'completely goofed' OTTAWA (CP) Commons sergeant-at-arms Col. D. V. Currie told a Commons com- mittee Thursday night that his staff "completely goofed" in al- lowing three police officers to enter the Parliament Buildings last Friday to interview mem- bers of the staff of Flora Mac- Donald (PC Kingston and the The committee is in- vestigating whether Miss Mac- Donald's parliamentary privi- leges were violated by the un- authorized visit by police to question her and her staff about theft of confidential files from the Indian affairs department. All dealt with the controversial James Bay project. Col. Currie, right-hand man to Speaker Lucien Lamoureux. said a constable on the Com- mons security staff failed to fol- low rigid procedures in allowing two city policemen and one RCMP sergeant into the build- ing to visit the offices of Miss MacDonald. He told the committee that security police have written in- structions to get in touch with Speaker Lamoureux or his dsp- uty before police are allowed to visit the office of an MP. He read a report from F. J. Yates, head of the Commons se- curity staff, which said the RCMP sergeant entered the West Block of the Parliament buildings with two city police- men. The RCMP sergeant, accord- ing to the report, showed his badge to the security officer and asked directions to Miss MacDonald's office. Mr. Currie said an investiga- tion narrowed the identity of the Commons security officer to a Constable J. B. Dupuis. He added that Mr. Dupuis has de- nied any knowledge of the in- cident. Mr. Currie said that Deputy Chief T. Welch of the Ottawa police department apologized for the incident. The committee investigation continues next week with sev- eral questions left unanswered. One is who directed police to question Miss MacDonald, the chief Conservative spokesman on Indian affairs. Miss MacDonald 5s a critic of the James Bay project and has in past Commons speeches re- ferred to confidential docu- ments leaked either to the press or others. Fanners lack organization EDMONTON (CP) The federal government's announc- ed ceiling on the price of wheat used for domestic flour produc- tion is another example of the way farmers get kicked around because they lack an effective Canada-wide organization, says a National Farmers Union spokesman.

Otto Lang, minister re- sponsible for the Canadian wheat board, said Thursday he could not promise there will not be another increase before then. Replying to a flood of Con- servative and New Democrat questions in the Commons, Mr. Lang said he does not have "an iron-clad agreement" from bak- eries that there will not be a further increase in the price of bread, which rose by about six cents a loaf last week. John Diefenbaker (PC- Prince Albert) had asked on what Mr. Lang had based his statements earlier this week that a price hike is unlikely for between six months and a year. The minister replied that he had a series of talks with mil- lers and bakers before and after increased wheat subsidies were announced Tuesday. He said he had been assured that if wheat costs do not rise, the price of bread won't either. Mr. Diefenbaker said the six- cent hike was a clear indication of how fatuous was a statement by Prime Minister Trudeau in July that bread prices would go up by no more than 1-10 of one per cent. Mr. Lang said about half the latest increase was due to world wheat price fluctuations. The balance of the increase was at- tributed to such things as higher labor costs "and, to some extent, prospective" in- creased costs. Satellite city plan submitted CALGARY (CP) Plans for development of a satellite city with a projected population of people have been sub- mitted to the Alberta depart- ment of municipal affairs. Mike Melton, spokesman for Melton Real Estate Ltd., which handled the purchase of acres 12 miles south of Calgary, made the announcement yes- terday. The proposed development is located at the junction of the Sheep and Highwood riv- ers. Funding for the plan under the federal landbank scheme was rejected in May by the Al- berta Housing Corporation. Mr. Melton said Premier Lougheed has supported the concept of satellite towns as opposed to unrestricted growth of Edmonton and Calgary. "It is hoped this development will set a pattern in Alberta to handle expanding urban growth." Man electrocuted near Brooks BROOKS (CP) John Earl Rempell, 24, of Brooks was electrocuted Thursday when he drilled into a water main with an electric drill. He was working in an exca- vation 2.5 miles east of the town which is 100 miles east, of Calgary. An inquest has been ordered. You get more with a Sears We service what we sell, coast-to-coast.
