Sir WILLIAM LYNE - I find that subclause (c) will require recasting inconsequence of the amendment providing for plumping, and I move -

That sub-clause (c) be omitted.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 160 agreed to.

Clause 161. - (Scrutiny of votes in Senate elections.)

Mr. L.E. GROOM (Darling Downs).I understood the Minister to say that provision was made, or would be made, that at outside polling places at which only a small number of votes are recorded, the presiding officer shall at the close of the poll sealthe ballot-box and send it on to the central returning officer. In which clause is that power given ? The clause under discussion makes some provision for an assistant returning officer, but there is no special provision for sending in a ballot box to any particular centre.

Suggest corrections
