Senator NEWLANDS (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I desire to bring under the notice of the VicePresident of the Executive Council, as head of the Electoral Department, a case of interference in a very .grave manner with the name- of an elector on the roll. In order to fully explain the case I will, with the permission of the Senate, read a short extract from a letter which I hold.

I was advised that the name on the roll was crossed out, and was commissioned to obtain definite information. I examined the Boothby roll at the St. Peter's Post Office, and saw the name crossed out. A marginal note "transferred to West Adelaide" is the official explanation.

Then the writer goes on to complain of the injustice that is inflicted upon the elector. I also hold a sworn declaration by the elector referred to, which, with the permission of the Senate, I will read.
