(UP) — Scnal« Republican policy-makers have discussed a new plan for compulsory meat rationing' but have r.o plans tor putting it in force now, 11. was disclosed today. Members of the Senate Republican Policy Committee said the group had discussed the advisability of following the British system cf meat rationing if Congress fhouid decide that rationing should be revived. It was emphasized, however, that there was no intention for Congress lo consider legislation at, the current session for President Truman's request for standby rationing and price control powers. Senate Republican Whip Kenneth S. Wherry of Nebraska even expressed doubt that any legislation dealing with inflation could be enacted this year. House Speaker Joseph W. Martin said, however, lhat two anti-inflation bills may be headed toward passage next week. Republican Congressional leaders expect to reach definite decisions this week on a course of action. British Flan Discussed Policy Committee members in the Senate reported that the new rationing system — following the British pattern—was discussed at a meeting last Friday. It differed from the American wartime "point 1 ! system in that It would allow .each person to spend a specific amount of money weekly on meat. Those Buying cheaper grades thus -could t 'aui a greater Quantity, a condi- n which might depress the prices of better grades. , One committee member said the alternative system was considered worthy of further discussion if Congress should be driven toward consideration of meat rationing. Policy Committee Chairman Robert A. Tail, R., O., mentioned the possibility of adopting the British system in a speech at New York yesterday. At the same time" he indicated he might support proposal to Impose meat rationing by. April 1. HLs statement presumably was in response to the views of some In Congress and the administration that the meat shortage would become much more serious' next Spring. Taft said, however, that he saw no possibility of Congress approving general controls and that he believed it would approve none unless absolutely necessary.. He added that it "may have to" adopt'some.
