Senator BLAKEY (VICTORIA) - Is the VicePresident of the Executive Council aware that in the Bourke-street post-office, Melbourne, there is an official who, when electors go to find out if their names are on the roll, advises them that it would be more convenient to go down to the rooms of the Liberal party, in Collins-street, and find out there? If that is the case, will the Minister endeavour to prevent the official from giving such advice, and, if he will not do so, will he instruct the official that rolls may also be seen at the Trades Hall and in the rooms of the Political Labour Council ?

Senator McCOLL - I am not aware that such a proceeding has taken place. I do not doubt the honorable senator's statement, but I think that he has been misinformed on the matter, for I can scarcely think that any official would do that.
