Mr ASTON (PHILLIP, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I direct a question to the Minister for Labour and National Service. In view of the decision of the Australian Council of Trade Unions to impose a compulsory levy on trade unions to bring to Australia union delegates from Russia and red China, will the Minister inform the House whether this is an attempt to force many trade unionists to contribute to the fostering of a political philosophy in the trade union movement, with which philosophy many of them do not agree? Further, should these delegates arrive in Australia, is it likely that they would be accorded the same shameful treatment that

F.5200/60.- R.- [Ill was accorded to the American trade unionist, Mr. Goldberg?
