Commons faces large backlog of business OTAWA (CP) The heat is on, and it's not just the heat of summer, as members of Parlia- ment return to work after the Dominion Day weekend to face a mountain of unfinished busi- ness.

The political pressure is on both government and opposition to get at least some of it-done before the summer holiday, al- ready delayed beyond the end of June. .Despite months of talking, the Allende to alter cabinet SANTIAGO (AP) Striking miners at the El Teniente cop- per mine returned to work to- day, giving President Salvador Allende a boost in his battle to restore order in Chile. Allende, the first elected Marxist leader in Latin Amer- ica, still faces a plague of vio- lence that has shaken con- fidence in his government. He was to reshuffle his cabinet to- day and observers believed the new ministers will include mili- tary men. The miners' strike, at the ori- gin of much of the recent vio- lence, lasted 76 days and cost the Allende government an esti- mated million in lost pro- duction. The miners went back in the pits after a settlement that in- cludes a series of monthly bo- nuses in addition to increases in basic pay. Allende consulted with army chief Carlos Prats and Defence Minister Jose Toha Monday night on additional security measures in the wake of Fri- day's thwarted coup. The talks followed the rejection by the lower house of Congress of Al- lende's request for state-of-siege powers. The country was reported calm. The cabinet shakeup was ex- pected last week, but Allende put it off because of the unsuc- cessful army uprising. The shakeup stems from the im- peachment by Congress of La- bor Minister Luis Figueroa and Mining Minister Sergio Bitarm. Strikers at the big El Teniente copper mine accused them of not enforcing a law that prom- ised economic improvements for the miners. New food price controls studied WASHINGTON (AP) The United States goverm tent's food advisory committee planned a closed session today to work on proposed new food price controls after being told that the current freeze will cause higher prices. Food industry spokesmen Monday predicted food short- ages because of the 60-day freeze. They also forecast dis- ruptions in the economy. The committee also heard from Kay Ryan, a government consumer specialist, who said she would prefer same food shortages to a continuing spiral in food costs. Ms. Ryan, consumer counsel to the Cost of Living Council, also told the committee that consumers lack confidence in the administration's ability and commitment to control in- flation. The food advisory committee is working on proposals to regu- late the food industry that would be included in the admin- istration's new Phase 4 price- control program. The controls are to replace current freeze. Ms. Ryan, a designation she prefers, said: "Food prices forget the whole incident hospital spokesman said.

Justice Minister Otto Lang told the Commons last week, "We consider it essential, be- fore we rise for the summer, to deal with these bills." Some MPs still hope for a re- cess by mid-July.
