Senator PEARCE - The Minister of Home Affairs replies -

The Electoral Act (section 21) provides that if both Houses of the Parliament pass a resolution approving of any proposed distribution, the Governor-General may by proclamation declare the names and boundaries of the Divisions, and such Divisions shall, until altered, be the Electoral Divisions for the State in which they are situated.
