Mr McWILLIAMS (Franklin) - I think also, that the amendment would fail in its object. It is very undesirable that a crowd of canvassers should be permitted to congregate about the entrances to polling booths, and I think that it would be preferable to prevent such persons from approaching within a certain distance. Electors should be able to record their votes without being pestered by canvassers.

Mr Groom - The difficulty is to fix a proper limit.
