Under bis proposal, consu- mers would have control of lo- cal healfh and social service centres and responsibility for policy and the administration of both funds and programs.

S. D. Roseubauin of Ottawa, eastern vice president of the Al- pine Club of Canada, said there are many mountains in the Yukon yet unreached by climb- ers or tourists. "Many of them: appeal1 to be relatively gentle from a climb- ing point of view and thus admi- rably suited to mountain hikers arid scramblers who probably form a larger group of potential users than dedicated climbers Mr. Hosenbaum told the Com- mons northern development ccmmittee. The committee has resumed hearings on a government bill that sets out a new mining cede for the territory. The code im- poses strict regulations aimed protecting the Yukon environ- ment.

Govt. explains export aid fund By CAliL MOLL1NS OTTAWA (CP) The govern- ment took psins Tuesday to in- sist that its proposed aid fund for exporting industries is not intended to subsidize experts in the face of new United States trade restrictions. That line provoked confusion in Ihe Commons finance com- mittee, especially since the aid fund has been billed as the gov- ernment's response to supple- mentary U.S. import duties im- posed Aug. 15, Further, only companies that normally export at least one- fifth of their production to the United States would quality for the proposed federal grants. Also, the grants would be di- rectly related to the U.S. sur- charge, covering up to tWo. thirds of the 10-per-cent levy at the U.S. border. Nevertheless, Bruce Howard Okanagan par- liamentary secretary to Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin, in- sisted repeatedly that the fed- eral grants were not intended to help Canadian exporters offset the impact of the U.S. sur- charges on selling prices in the U.S. market. At one stage during the com- mittee hearing of almost three hours it appeared from Mr. H o w a r d 's explanations that companies receiving the federaj grants would be unable to use the money to keep prices down. But he finally conceded under a barrage of questions that the funds could be used lo counter the U.S. duties and keep down selling prices.

If so, the U.S. would take countervail- ing of higher import duties or similar bar- said. Mr. Howard, appearing on be- half of Mr. Pepin as the com- mittee began detailed study of Bill C-262, stressed that "it Li not an export-subsidy mea. sure." "I want lo make It clear that it is not to be construed as a retaliatory measure against tha American he said. The on'y aim was to maintain a satisfactory level of employ- ment.
