1975 Australian constitutional crisis . Whitlam's Labor government had been elected in 1972 with a small majority in the House of Representatives, but with the Senate balance of power being held by the Democratic Labor Party who usually supported the Liberal-Country Opposition. Another election in 1974 resulted in little change. In October 1975, the Opposition used its control of the Senate to defer passage of appropriation bills (needed to finance government expenditure), that had been passed by the House of Representatives.
The Whitlam Labor Government was elected on 2 December 1972, the first Labor Government for twenty-three years.
The political and constitutional crisis which culminated in the dismissal of the Whitlam Government on 11 November 1975 is the most dramatic event in Australian political history. The Whitlam Labor Government was elected on 2 December 1972, the first Labor Government for twenty-three years. Its majority in the House of Representatives was 9 seats, but it was in a minority of 26 to 34 in the Senate.
The Whitlam Government (1972 - 1975) introduced many ideas that impacted on all the people of Australia. The constitution was the barrier to introducing a health scheme in Australia, and the civil conscription clause. There may have been impediments that prevented. Medibank and other health schemes were designed to avoid civil conscription and provide healthcare service based on Government finance. Whitlam’s aim in creating this system was to break the connection between healthcare and money. Whitlam wanted to break free from the hindrance of money; he wanted healthcare system based on health needs of people rather than the importance of money requirements.

By early 1975 the Whitlam Government was doomed. I voted Labor in 1972 and again the next election. I was a chemistry student. Whether the end came by the ballot box or a constitutional crisis it was definitely on its way and inevitable. It was clear that Whitlam could not control his cabinet . Early in 1975 a representative of the Department of Urban and Regional Development (DURD) which the Fraser opposition promised to close down, arrived to raise interest among engineering and science students in jobs. The result of the next election only confirmed the matter.
