Sir WILLIAM LYNE - This is a clause of which I disapproved, but which was inserted by the Senate. I know that it is impossible in many places to procure halls.

Clause negatived.

Clauses183 and 184 agreed to.

Clause 185-

In addition to bribery and undue influence, the following shall be illegal practices-

(a)   Any publication of any electoral advertisement, hand-bill, or pamphlet, or any issue of any electoral notice without at the end thereof the name and address of the person authorizing the same, and on the face of the notice the name and address of the person authorizing the notice.

(b)   Printing or publishing any printed electoral advertisement, hand-bill, or pamphlet (other than an advertisement in a newspaper) without the name and place of business of the printer being printed at the foot of it.

(c)   Any contravention by a candidate of the provisions of Part XV. of this Act relating to the limitation of electoral expenses.

Mr. MAHON(Coolgardie). - I cannot understand why, if a candidate puts an advertisement in the newspaper, it should be necessary for it to be certified to by the person who authorizes its insertion. It is also unnecessary to enact that the name and place of business of the printer of any advertisement, hand-bill, or pamphlet shall be printed at the foot of it, because that is already provided for in the State laws. The provisions of this clause seem to have been taken from the South Australian law ; they do not exist in the electoral law of any of the other States. I move -

That paragraph (a) be omitted.
