Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) (Honorary Minister) . - I feel sure that' the Leader of the Opposition is anxious that this Bill shall meet with the approbation of the majority of the members of the Committee. But in his anxiety to secure an amendment which he states will meet a difficulty, he apparently overlooks the fact that provision is made for such! cases as he has incidentally mentioned. He will find that Part VII. of the principal Ad makes every provision for rolls to be compiled in the way prescribed.

Senator Millen - If every provision is made there, what is the use of this other provision to meet cases which the Government imagine are likely to arise?

Senator FINDLEY - This is intended to make every possible safeguard in order that rolls shall be in better condition than they were under the original Act.

Senator Millen - Is the clause intended to meet such a case as I have suggested, where a man, instead of applying for transfer has applied for fresh registration?

Senator FINDLEY - It is not necessarily intended to meet such a case as that. But it may happen that a man instead of applying for transfer may .make application to be placed on a fresh roll.
