Mr HIGGINS (NORTHERN MELBOURNE, VICTORIA) - In the absence of the Minister for Home Affairs, I desire to ask the Postmaster-General whether he will take the House into his confidence at the -earliest possible date in regard to the electoral rolls of Yackandandah, and whether he considers that a horse's nosebag is a proper receptacle for the rolls of the free and independent electors of both sexes 1 Would he treat the plans for the transcontinental railway in the same manner 1 I should further like to know whether we will give the House an opportunity to recover and purify these parliamentary rolls at an early date ?
