Question so resolved in the affirmative.

Senator MILLEN(New South Wales). - As we are now practically dealing with the same amendment, that is, the insertion of the words " within the State," I ask honorable senators to draw upon their practical experience of the conditions of the Commonwealth. I do not know whether any honorable senator has taken the trouble to look at the formidable library presented by a copy of the rolls for a whole State. I know that the rolls for my own State are contained in twenty-six enormous volumes, and if this amendment is carried, it will mean that copies of each one of these will have to be carted to the remotest little polling place in the State.
