Senator NEEDHAM (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Has the attention of the Vice-President of the Executive Council been called by the Electoral Branch of the Home Affairs Department to the telegram which I am about to read, and to which Mr.Farrar this morning said he would call the Minister's attention -

Numbers electors objected to on Federal roll, including residents here since inception of field.

The reference is to Bullfinch, Western. Australia. I desire to know what steps the Minister will take in this regard when men and women who have been resident on the fields for four years have been objected to? If persons are objected to, what chance will there be to have their names reinstated prior to the issue of the writs?

Senator McCOLL - Two or three minutes ago Mr. Farrar rang me up to say that he had received a communication from the honorablesenator. All that I can say is that the Department inform me that they are making inquiries into this matter.
