Mr WEBSTER asked the Minister of

Home Affairs, upon notice -

1.   Whether he is aware that hundreds of names appear on the State Rolls of New South Wales (of those entitled to be enrolled as Federal voters) whose names do not appear on the Federal Rolls?

2.   Is he aware that great confusion is caused by the conflicting methods of State and Federal Electoral Laws, in consequence of which electors holding a right or being enrolled on the State Rolls conclude that such insures them their inclusion in the list of Federal voters?

3.   Will the Minister consider the advisability of inserting in the Federal Rolls the names of eligible Federal voters which appear on the State Rolls, and are omitted from the present Federal Rolls, or authorize a new collection of names for the Federal Rolls by the police of the various States?
