Mr WATSON (Bland) -I move-

That the following words be added to the clause: - "Provided that a sum of five shillings shall be deposited in respect of each objection lodged, to be forfeited if the objection is held to be frivolous."

There is a provision later on in the Bill empoweringthe revision court to award costs to the extent of £5 if an objection is not established, but that does not meet the case of a frivolous objection lodged by a man of straw, from whom no costs can be recovered. The money should be returned if the objection is upheld.

Amendment (by Mr. Deakin) proposed -

That the amendment be amended by the insertion after the word " lodged " of the words " by any person other than an officer."
