Senator O'KEEFE (TASMANIA) - In the case of objections to enrolment being made, has the usual fee of 5s. been deposited by the objectors, and if not, why?

Senator McCOLL - I am not aware that a fee has been deposited in any case; it has not come under my notice that it has been done. If objections are sent in to any names, the objections are inquired into; but no name is struck off a roll unless strict inquiry is made as to whether it should come off or not.

Senator O'KEEFE - Perhaps I may be allowed to explain the nature of my question. Any person may enter an objection against another person being on theroll believing that that person has gone elsewhere; the objector should deposit a fee of 5s., and the deposit may be forfeited if the objection is found to be frivolous. Is the Minister aware of any particular instances where a fee of 5s. has been deposited, or where such deposit has been forfeited on the ground that the objection is frivolous ?

Senator McCOLL - I am not aware of any instance.
