HC Deb 14 April 1986 vol 95 c253W
Mr. Winnick

asked the Paymaster General what is his latest information as to how many unions have balloted over political funds under recent legislation; and of these how many have voted, respectively, in favour and against retaining a political fund.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

We are aware of 38 unions that have held political fund review ballots under the 1984 Trade Union Act, all of which have voted in favour of retaining their funds.
