HC Deb 28 April 1927 vol 205 c1010

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of complaints made by trades unionists about the payment of the political levy in the 12 months ended 31st March, 1927; and the number of these complaints that were found on inquiry to be justified?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Arthur Steel-Maitland)

I have been asked to reply. The number of complaints under Section 3 of the Trade Union Act, 1913, made during the period in question was 13, of which seven were found on inquiry to be "justified, and one is still sub-judice."
