With Labor's 66-61 edge in the House the way is clear for Whitlam to take the unprece- dented step of holding a joint sitting of both houses to force through legislation halted by the previous Senate There are five bills on the Senate shelves establishment of a gasoline and minerals au- thority to give Australians maximum ownership and control of vast mineral and energy resources, a national health insurance scheme legislation which will ban collusive pncefmng and make safety standards mandatory, arbitration legislation which will make trade union amalgamations easier, electoral changes designed to reduce the variance in the size of electorates to 10 per cent from 20 per cent Another bill, which does not qualify constitutionally for joint sitting ratification but is, causing consternation in business circles, is aimed at extending the role of the government's business Australian Industry- Development Corp WANT COUNTRY BACK Its major objective is to buy back Australia from overseas companies that own chunks of the mineral industry which has an annual export value of 95 billion Political commentators say expect to strengthen Australia s independent role in world affairs and to promote the suggestion for an Indian Ocean zone of peace Australian diplomats are re- ported to have made direct contact with top American and Soviet officials in a bid to halt a naval build-up in the area Whitlam is expectedjocon- tinue his reversal of this coun- trv's former tie> with the U.S and Britain.
