Senator McCOLL (VICTORIA) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - The honorable senator was good enough to show the circular to me previous to the meeting of the Senate. The police neither take names off the roll nor put them on. They simply report to the Electoral Officer, who makes inquiry as to whether the name should come off the roll, and, after making that due inquiry, performshis duty in regard to the matter. This is just on a par with a number of statements which are going about the country, and which it is, perhaps, believed reflect on the Government, but which do not. They reflect on the Electoral Office and on the officers.
