Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Prime Minister been drawn to the press report containing the allegation, made at a recent meeting of the Sydney Trades and Labour Council, that the Australian Communist party was dishonestly collecting money in factories, on the pretext that it was to be used to finance a campaign for the maintenance of the wages of females in industry? As the Australian Communist party is nowa capitalistic organization which owns buildings and other property, as well as other assets, will the right honorable gentleman institute an inquiry in regard to the source of its funds, particularly the money collected by it from Labour organizations?
