Mr McCOLM (Bowman) (2:32 AM) .- I find myself differing again from the view that has been presented by the Minister. The party organizations - at least in my area - as a part of the effort they put into their work, contact every person they can find who is going to have a postal vote and they ask him whether he wants any advice or help. Above all, we ask him to make sure that some responsible person puts the postal vote into a letter box. We are already asking the voters to do it. I maintain that the various organizations and the electoral officers would not have any difficulty in impressing on people that they could have this vote by means of an electoral visitor, if they desired it. I am certain that the Minister would be surprised at the great number of electors who would be prepared to make use of that service if they knew it was available.
