Senator ANDERSON - The Minister for the Interior has furnished the following answer -

Under the provisions of the Commonwealth Electoral Act, an elector, who will throughout the hours of polling on polling day be travelling under conditions which will preclude him from voting at any established polling booth, may record a postal vote at any time after the close of nominations. In view of the existing postal voting provisions,I do not consider it necessary to provide a polling booth on board the "Empress of Australia ". In any event my information is that the " Empress of Australia " will not be at sea during the hours of polling on 5th December next.
