Mr BENNETT (SWAN, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to you, Mr Speaker. I refer to the recent heavy support from Opposition parties for legislation introduced by the Government, and the subsequent overcrowding which occurred on Government benches during divisions - I instance a certain Bill which was passed here - and the time lost in counting, thus delaying legislation, and the further many occasions on which divisions have been called, also delaying the business of the House. Will you institute an immediate investigation to see what may be done to install an electronic voting system in the House before the next session of Parliament, thus eliminating problems in the future?

Mr SPEAKER -I will give the matter consideration and let the honourable member know at the earliest possible opportunity.
