Senator McDOUGALL - By way of personal explanation, I wish to say that the Vice-President of the Executive Council has wrongly put the statement made by me. I said that 11,000 electors* had been noted by the police as having left their residences. I did not say that their names had been struck off the rolls. I said that notices of objection had been sent out to them. I would further point out that the number is not now 11,000,. but has increased to 16,000.

Senator McCOLL - The Hansard report reads -

Mr Mcdougall - I wish to ask the VicePresident of the Executive Council if he wil> communicate with the electoral officer for the division of Cook, New South Wales, asking him. if it is a fact that 11,000 names have been, struck off the roll for that division, thus imposing upon him the necessity of sending out. 11,000 notices?

Senator McDougall - You have it wrong. I did not say anything of the sort.

Senator McCOLL - I have not ifr. wrong, anyhow.
