The bill would establish an million fund for the fiscal year ending March 31.

(CP) City po- lice questioned two persons Monday in connection with the Mdnap-slaying of 10-y e a r -o 1 d Gilles Leblanc, but both were released.

Inspector Jacques Charron said in an interview earlier that "quite a few" persons wore questioned during the weekend but no one was detained and no spccifi' leads developed. Police also said Monday there was no evidence to substantiate that the boy had been sexually assaulted, but this would be confirmed when a pathologist's report was made.

Patrick Nowlan (PC Valley) and John Burton East) made unsuccessful attempts to have farmers and fishermen made eligible to draw money from the fund. But Speaker Lucicn Lamou- reux ruled their proposed amendments out of order on procedural grounds. He indi- cated, however, that such amendments might be in order during the tliird-reading stage. Farmers and fishermen might get.some relief from other gov- e r n m e n t action. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson already has told the Commons he will take steps to help farmers af- fected by the surcharge, using support price legislation already in effect. Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pcpin, piloting the bill through the Commons, said Monday the fund would help farmers and fishermen indirectly since pay- ments from it would help to keep processors of such prod uds in business- Defeated by a voice vote was an amendment by Marcel Lam bert (PC-Edmonton West) that would have reuuired the govern- ment to get approval of Parlia- ment for any regulations passed by cabinet governing payments under the bill.
