Sir WILLIAM MCMILLAN (Wentworth) - It seems to me that the point at issue is whether electors will have time to send in applications for these forms, and obtain them from the returning officers in time to record their votes. But why should not the forms be distributed broadcast through the electorates, and sent direct to the returning officer ? Why should electors be required to make application for application forms'?

Mr McCay - Under that system there would be no opportunity to secure identification by comparing two signatures.

Sir WILLIAM McMILLAN - If that is done in every case, the whole 30 days allowed between the nomination and the election will be absolutely necessary.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 9 -

Electoral registrars may be appointed to keep the rolls at specified polling places. The divisional returning officer shall keep the rolls for all polling places in his division for which no registrar has been appointed.

Clause verbally amended.
