Mr MARR (Parkes) (Honorary Minister) . - This clause was postponed last night for re-drafting with the object of making it more understandable to honorable members. I now move--

That the words " whose real place of living is- not in the division in respect of which he is enrolled shallnot be entitled- to vote, as an elector of. that, division . paragraph , (b), be left out with' a view' to insert inlieu thereof the words " shall notbe entitled to voteas an elector of the- divisionin respect of which he is enrolled."

The proviso will then read - "Provided that an elector shall not be entitled to voteas an elector of the division in respect of which he is enrolled unless his real place of living was at some time within three months immediately preceding polling day within that division. In this proviso the words ' real place of living ' include the place of living to which a person temporarily living elsewhere has a fixed intention of returning for the purpose of continuing to live thereat."

An elector who for more than three months has been out of the division in which his " real place of living " is situated, is covered by the proviso which sets out that " real place of living " is that to which he has a fixed intention of returning.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.
