I I MB4siiSy- (Xi ...,.:: f N; ' societies are unstable, but I firmly believe there is a need for more strict Government control. "I believe that the flush of building society funds has helped push up Australia's building costs. "It has forced up interest rates and pushed up costs by adding to the aggregate money available. "I can't : see why building-societies shouldn't be subject to the same rules and controls as banks or insurance companies.

He hoped to meet building society representatives this week to tell them of the Government's plans. Had heyday' "Of course, we are hoping for co-operation, but if that doesn't come about legislation may be necessary. "The building societies have had . their heyday. There is a need now for stiffer controls over their lending operations. "I personally don't consider building societies are the public benefactors they make out to be." Mr Crean's comments followed an attack he made in the Parliament this week on building so-cietv operations. : He said then that societies had mushroomed far too auickly and had cut. across the "canons of prudery finance."

" First reports say that the survivor was a crewman who clung to some floating timber and was carried ashore to a remote part of Flores Island about 250 miles from Dili. It is not . known how long he spent in" the sea. A - report from Radio Dili, monitored last night by a Portuguese resident of Darwin, said the survivor had been he'ped ashore and cared for by Indonesian villagers.
