Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) (12:25 PM) . - The Opposition will vote against this clause which proposes to increase the permissible size of electoral posters from 60 square inches to 1,200 square inches. The Minister for the Interior (Mr. Freeth) said it was felt that some limitation of size was still desirable to prevent undue extravagance and the ugly disfiguring of the countryside. We agree that there should still be a limitation on size on those grounds. We feel that the objectives would be properly achieved by retaining the present size. We believe that no case has been made out for increasing the size from 60 to 1,200 square inches.

Question put -

That the clause be agreed to.
