Mr STORRER (Bass) - I shall support the clause as it stands, because it seems to me that if the receipted bills of particulars are open for public inspection, the necessities of the case will be met. Very few persons will wish to see the accounts. Each account would probably occupy a column of the Gazette, and when we consider that probably 200 candidates would furnish particulars of their expenses, the cost of advertising would be very considerable. No good purposecould be served by adopting the proposal of the honorable member for Riverina.

Amendment negatived.

Clause agreed to.
