Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta a THE LETHBRIDGB HERALD Saturdoy, ieptimbir 11, 1971 Opposition to press for farm payment OTTAWA (CP) Tlie oppo- sition will continue next week to try every opening offered by Ihe Commons rule book to press the government on its refusal to obey the law and pay more than million owed to Prairie wheat fanners. Friday, Wallace Nesbitt (PC m e t a procedural roadblnck after aslcing the Speaker to put to the vote a motion to set up a Commons inqillry that could lead to im- peachment of the responsible cabinet ministers. Speaker Uicien Lamoureux said the motion could not be forwarded the way it was put Friday, but C o n s e r vative House Leader Gerald Baldwin, originator of the motion, said in an interview he will ask the Speaker to make another rul- ing Wednesday or Thursday if the govenunent does not take action first. The issue involves the refus- al of t h e government t o pay to the Canadian wheat board money due farmers un- der the Temporary Wheat Re- serves Act. The overdue p a y m ents, which the wheat board is re- quired to pass on to farmers, date back to July 1970. Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the board, said in an overnight debate late Thursday that the payments had not been made because the govern- ment wants to wait for passage of a new bill that vtould repeal the act and provide funds to stabilize western farm in- comes. The proposed hill, stalled for iconths in the Commons, also provides ofr an i m m cdiate million payment that would replace the payments due under the present law. OpporiHon MPs have said Hie government is holding a club over the opposition by withholding the reserves act payments until its bill gets passed. Stanley Knowles (NDP Winnipeg North Centre) says Uie issue involves more than farmers' problems. is Being done is in defiance of the rule of Inw and the traditions of Parlia- he slid in winding up the emotional overnight Je- bate. The government coidd use the same tactic and slop pay- ments of family allowances to try to lorce the opposition to pass its proposed new family security bill. Government sources said privately Friday the opposition was succeeding in adding to the government's embarrass- menf. Only two Liberal MPs, In- cluding Mr. Lang, responded to opposition charges during the debate, and neither disput- ed that the law was being broken Mr. Lang said he "would gladly go to jail in the cause of the Prairie farmers." But on Friday, External Af- fairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, acting prime minister, told the Commons: "We don't consider the gov- ernment is in breach of the law." He would not elaborate when questioned laler outside the House. Mr. Baldwin, forecasting fu- ture oppusition tactics on the issue, said the opposition would use the next debating day al- loted to topics of the opposi- tion's choice to bring up the issue again. Govenunent House Leader Allan MacEaclien has not an- swered a letter from Mr. Bald- win asking for a day to debate the motion to impeach minis- ters, but his spokesman said a response would come shortly. Mr. Baldwin wants a debate that will lead to a wte, mak- ing every MP declare his stand on the issue. "It's this cringing in the cor- ners that botners he said. There was no way of getting at them.
