Mr CHANTER (Riverina) - I propose to move that the whole of the proviso to clause 67 be omitted. It is proposed that the sum of 5s. shall be deposited in respect of each objection lodged by any person to the presence of a name on the roll. That would have the effect of preventing objections from being lodged. We desire to purify the rolls as far as possible, and I hold that it should be perfectly open to any person who knows that a name is improperly on the roll to lodge an objection. I am quite aware that in the event of the objection being upheld the deposit would be refunded, but I can conceive of many bonâ fide objections being held to be frivolous.

Mr Groom - The Bill, as introduced in the Senate, provided for a deposit of only 1s., and I am prepared to consider an amendment to restore the original amount.

Mr CHANTER - Then I move-

That the words " five shillings," line 9, be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "one shilling."
