Mr CHIFLEY - I was not aware that Mr. Bennett was a selected Australian Labour party candidate. However, if he has been selected, undoubtedly the local branch of the Australian Labour party is satisfied about his loyalty to the Labour movement. The principles of the Australian Labour party are, of course, contrary to those followed by the Communist party. I cannot undertake to have an inquiry made by the Commonwealth security service; but if there is any information on the subject that can be made available to the honorable member for Bendigo I shall supply it to him.
