Senator KEATING (Tasmania) (Honorary Minister) . - I move -

That the following new clause be inserted : - " 14A. Where the polling for one or more referendums is appointed to lake place on the same day as the polling for an election for the Senate or a general election for the House of Representatives, an application for a postal vote certificate for the purposes of the election shall be deemed to contain an application for a postal vote certificate and a postal ballot-paper for the purposes of the referendums."

The object of this amendment is to obviate the necessity for a separate application for a postal ballot-paper for the purposes of the ordinary election as well as for the referendum. Obviously if an elector cannot attend at his polling place to vote at the parliamentary election, he cannot attend to record his vote for or against a proposed law. If he applies for a postal certificate in respect to the one matter, his application is to be deemed an application for a postal certificate for both or all, and will be treated accordingly.
