Mr ANDERSON (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct to the Minister for Labour and National Service a question arising out of an incident that is reported to have occurred on the Hobart waterfront in which two waterside workers refused to pay a levy of 10s. to the Aus.ralian Labour party's funds. Will the Minister inform the House, whether any political, party has a legal or moral right to demand political funds from workers who, to obtain employment, are obliged to join a union? Further, in the event of their expulsion by the union concerned, have these men any redress or protection under legislation directed against such extortion?
