Sir WILLIAM LYNE - Before the amendment is submitted there are several small amendments which should be made to bring this clause into conformity with what has already been done.

Clause verbally amended.

Sir WILLIAM LYNE - I hope honorable members will now allow this clause to pass. After the discussion which has taken place, I think there ought to be a general clause such as suggested by the honorable and learned member for South Australia, Mr. Glynn. I quite agree with the suggested amendment.

Sir JOHNQUICK (Bendigo).- It seems to me that the only offence in this clause which requires to be brought within the penal provisions is that of looking at the ballot-paper or disclosure of its contents by persons in a privileged position. I understood the honorable and learned member for South Australia, Mr. Glynn, to suggest that there should be a general clause providing for offences against the Act ; but the offences must be distinct.

Mr Glynn - The penal offences can be picked out, and a general clause inserted to apply to all.

Sir William Lyne - I intend to propose such a clause.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 115 and 116 agreed to.

Clause 117. - (Letters to be produced at scrutiny.)
