Senator DOBSON (Tasmania) - I agree with every word that Senator Millen has said, and I had intended to move that " onethird " should be struck out, with a view to insert "one-fifth." However, I did not move in the matter, because of the presence of sub-clause c, to which Senator Clemons has called attention. In a large number of the 'divisions there might be inaccuracies, and yet the inaccuracies or variations might be much greater in the smaller number of divisions. I think it would be a mistake to allow the proportion to remain at onethird.

Suggest corrections
