Mr GLYNN (South Australia) - I think that the honorable member for Coolgardie is right in his criticism regarding the wording of the clause. Strange to say, I had marked out certain of the words to which he refers as surplusage. It would be sufficient to provide that " any elector shall, except as provided in sub-section (2), only be entitled to vote, &c." Even then the provision would not be perfect in form, because it should commence with a negative.

Sir William Lyne - I am willing to agree to an amendment of the amendment in that form.

Amendment of Senate's amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Motion (by Mr. Glynn) proposed -

That the Senate's amendment be amended by the omission of the words ' ' when voting at a polling place at elections for the Senate or for the House of Representatives."
