Senator BLAKEY (for Senator Findley) asked the Minister representing the Minister of Home Affairs, upon notice - Whether the following suggestions made by the writer of the letter, headed " Electoral Rolls," in the Argus, of the 10th June, will be carried into effect : -

1.   " That copies of electoral rolls be chained to sonic conspicuous place at all railway stations, and a conspicuous poster erected to indicate that the rolls are there open for inspection."?

2.   " That a dozen copies of all metropolitan rolls should be fixed at the Melbourne stations, so that the public can ascertain if they are on the roll and, also, have been removed from the roll of their previous district, if any."?

Senator McCOLL - It is the practice of the Department at the present time to exhibit the rolls at the places mentioned, but they are frequently carried away, and I am considering the introduction of some method of making them more secure than they have been in the past.
