Senator OAKES (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Has the attention of the Vice-President of the Executive Council been drawn to a circular which has been extensively distributed in New South Wales, at any rate, and which contains these attacks on the Electoral Office-

Police are taking names off the rolls, hut will put nono on. 75,000 Labour voters disfranchised.

You may be fined £2 if you do not see to your enrolment at once.

At the bottom the line " Save two pounds " is printed in large letters. The circular has printed on its top, in bolder letters still, "Cook's Latest." I desire to know from the Minister whether he has seen the circular, whether the statements contained therein are true, and, if so, who is responsible! I pass on the circular to him.
