Australian Labor Party (Non-Communist)
Unlike the 1931 split, however, he was in a minority in New South Wales, many of his old supporters such as Eddie Ward remained loyal to Labor Prime Minister John Curtin, and Lang candidates polled poorly.
In 1941, before it faced a state election, the Non-Communist Labor Party was wound up and its members, with the exception of Lang himself, were re-admitted to the Labor Party. This allowed Curtin to become Prime Minister at the head of a united party in October 1941.
The party's membership included five federal MPs (Jack Beasley, Joe Gander, Dan Mulcahy, Sol Rosevear and Tom Sheehan) and two senators (Stan Amour and John Armstrong). Nine state MLAs and six MLCs also joined the group.
