Senator O'KEEFE (TASMANIA) - Will the VicePresident of the Executive Council undertake, even now, that the Electoral Branch of the Home Affairs Department will issue to officials a definite instruction that the law requiring a deposit of 5s. with every objection, where it is necessary that such a deposit shall be made, will be carried out?

Senator McCOLL - Where a formal objection is lodged, a deposit of 5s. must, under the law, be made. But I should like to point out to honorable senators that, since the law came into operation, only one 5s. deposit has ever been made.
