Mr GROOM (DARLING DOWNS, QUEENSLAND) (Minister for Home Affairs) - The collection of names by the police was finished at the end of March of last year, and upon it the printed rolls were based. In New South Wales, Queensland, and some of the other States another collection has since been made by the police for the compilation of the State rolls, and I have consulted the Chief Electoral Officer as to the advisability of obtaining the names so collected, with a view to supplying omissions from the Commonwealth rolls. This information will' be obtained, and we are taking other steps to the same end, which I will mention in replying to a question on the notice-paper.
