Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I had no intention of speaking but for the remarks of the honorable member for Bourke (Mr. Blackburn). His specious plea on behalf of the Minister for Labour and National Service(Mr. Ward) gave to this House some indication of how far party loyalty will go. We know that the honorable member for Bourke has been disciplined by the Labour party because of his "Leftist" leanings. At times he has been excluded from party conferences because of his communistic tendencies. The right honorable member for Kooyong (Mr. Menzies) drew attention to the fact that one section of the policy propounded by the Minister for Labour and National Service was definitely communistic.

Mr Ward - What section?
