Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I understand the VicePresident of the Executive Council to say that he is in favour of the principle of the amendment, and, considering the enormous geographical area of Australia, some provision of the kind is, in my opinion, very necessary. If telegraphic proxies are so novel as we have been told they are, we ought, I think, to adopt the amendment so as to make the matter perfectly clear; otherwise I quite believe such proxies could be successfully contested in the Courts.
