Mr KILLEN (MORETON, QUEENSLAND) - Has the attention of the Minister for Labour and National Service been drawn to the fact that, following correspondence between the Boilermakers Society of Australia and some of its subbranches, one sub-branch resolved that all of the members employed on a particular project should donate 2s. a week towards what was described as a peace programme? Further, has the right honorable gentleman's attention been drawn to the fact that the funds so raised are to be divided equally among the Australian Labour party, the Communist party of Australia, and the New South Wales Peace Assembly? Is there any legislative protection at all for those members of the trade union movement who do not wish to provide funds for such treasonable organizations as the Communist party of Australia?
