New Democratic Party Expected To Back Budget 'OTTAWA (AP) -- There were clear indications today that the Canadian government's budget proposals would gain the support needed from the New Democratic party to keep Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau's minority Liberal government in power, at least temporarily. New Democrat leader David Lewis said there was much he liked in the budget that Finance Minister John Turner presented to the House of Commons on Monday. The party's 31 votes provide Trudeau a majority as long as they stay with him. . The budget calls for cuts _in the personal income tax. increased pensions and lower sales taxes and customs duties. Turner told newsmen that more than 70 per cent of the tax cuts would go to families where the breadwinner makes less than $10,000 a year. "It's a family budget for the average Canadian family," the minister said. But it also risks inflation by a $975 million deficit on $19 billion in expenditures.' Turner said this risk had to be taken to cut unemployment, which is now over 7 per cent. A unique feature of the bill provides for adjustment of income-tax rates and exemptions Inn.
