Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I would like to suggest to those who, like myself, are entirely opposed tothe nullification of the voting by post provisions, that, should any further discussion be desired upon that point, it left over until the latter portion of the Bill, though it will be noticed that this clause strikes out of the interpretation section of the principal Act the words " Voting by Post."

Senator Vardon - Better have the discussion now.

Senator MILLEN - It is immaterial whether we take the division on this clause or later on. I merely wish to avoid having a double discussion on the matter. I have no desire to add anything further to the discussion. All I wish to say is that I shall invite the Committee to divide on one of the clauses dealing with the abolition of voting by post. I think it would be better if we were to have the debate on any subsequent clause which specifically strikes out the voting by post provisions.
