Senator PULSFORD (New South Wales) - I do not think we should, without reason, interfere with the existing provision, which is evidently based on the belief that the Electoral Officer ought to retain the receipts in view of possible inquiries. I suggest that the addition of the following words would meet the case -

Provided that when required the Commonwealth Electoral Officer shall provide a certified copy of any receipted bill, and that the same shall be received in evidence in any Court of law.

Suggest corrections
