Resistivity ρ(T) and magnetoresistivity results are reported for several U1 - xThxPd2Al3 compounds and for U0.3Th0.7,Pd2Ga3. Non-Fermi liquid behaviour is observed for U0.4Th0.6Pd2Al3 as evidenced from a linear temperature dependence of ρ(T) at low temperatures. Application of a magnetic field changes the resistivity to a ρ = ρ0 - cTn dependence.
