Senator KEATING (Tasmania) (Honorary Minister) . - I am assured that there is no electorate in which there is not a number of polling places and polling place rolls. Whether there be subdivisions or not, there will be a number of polling place rolls, which, in the aggregate, will constitute the division poll, though not printed as a separate document. The words " polling place " cover all possible cases that can arise.

Senator Millen - If that be so, it would be better to have it so set out in the Act than to leave it to the option of those who havethe administration. If each electorate is subdivided the Bill may work all right.
