Mr KING O'MALLEY (Darwin) - I would urge the honorable member for Herbert not to press his amendment. He must be aware that there are many publicans, who, although decent fellows, naturally wish to see a contest because of the expenditure of money that it involves, and are therefore prepared to put up opposition when a deposit is not required.

Mr Wilks - The honorable member does not want opposition:.

Mr KING O'MALLEY - None of us do. The honorable member for Herbert must be aware that a Labour man, or any other candidate who has a hope of winning a seat, has no difficulty in raising a ^25 deposit. If such a man experiences any difficulty in the matter, let him come to me.
