Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - An answer to part of the question at least would involve the expression of a legal opinion. I do

Dot feel competent to express such an opinion in answer to a question without notice, but I shall examine the circumstances to which reference has been made. It has always seemed- to me that a political party can have very little faith in its own policies and the soundness of the appeal it makes to the nation if it must compel supporters to contribute to its funds. However, that is a purely personal opinion. I am not able to answer authoritatively the whole of the honorable member's question, but I shall look into it and see whether I can then give him a better answer.
