Mr KILLEN (Moreton) (2:17 AM) .I am sorry that the committee has agreed to link this proposed clause with the one previously under discussion. I do not like the electoral, visitor principle,, but the proposal for mobile booths has a good deal of- merit. The system has worked quite satisfactorily in Queensland. It has worked, I would say, to the satisfaction of all major political parties. It relieves hospital staffs of the embarrassment caused by people who come into hospitals at all hours, running around' the wards and upsetting the patients. I hope that the Minister will earnestly consider this proposal, because- 1 think it would represent a significant advance. I fail to see any solid objection to it.
