Mr WATSON (Bland) - I should like to know what is the meaning of the words " necessary to be stated in the roll ? " Do they mean that the presiding officer is to ask the elector questions relating to particulars which are already upon the roll ?

Sir William Lyne - I think that the clause explains itself.

Mr WATSON - I quite understand what is aimed at. The desire is to obtain a distinct statement from the elector which will enable him to be identified as the person claiming to vote. At the same time the phraseology employed seems peculiar.
