Mr TUDOR - Furthermore, I understand that, in the cases of Mr. Palmer and Mr. Chanter, who succeeded in unseating, by their petitions, the gentlemen first declared elected, the parliamentary allowance was paid as from the date of the original election. I do not say that the gentleman who was in December last returned for Ballarat, and sat here for some time, should be asked to refund what was paid to him by way of parliamentary allowance; but Mr. McGrath, who unseated him, and was kept outof the seat for a time by thefault of the officials,should be paid the allowance from the 13th December- the date of the original election. I trust that the Government will give favorable consideration to this matter, so that justice -may be done to all parties concerned.
