Senator CLEMONS (Tasmania) . - This is rather a complicated clause. It purports to apply the Commonwealth Electoral Act. I do not know why there is a limitation to the mode of election for the House of Representatives. I wish to inquire how that mode differs from that relating to elections for the Senate. We are told that the provisions of our Electoral Act shall apply " to the referendum as if it were an election of members of the House of Representatives." I wish to know why there is that limitation?
