Dr KLUGMAN (Prospect) - Mr Deputy Speaker,I suppose it is fitting that you should be in the chair at the present time since your seat, according to the latest census figures, contains the smallest population in New South Wales. It is a pity that the hon- ourable member for McMillan (Mr Hewson), who is a Country Party member and strongly supports that Party and who, judging by his maiden speech is probably also a member of the League of Rights, is not in the House at the moment because he strongly supports the present system of distribution of electorates and the present system of voting. I intend to seek leave to incorporate in Hansard the figures for the Division of McMillan. The figures show that the honourable member for McMillan received 8,282 primary votes in the last Federal election which amounted to 16.63 per cent of the vote in the Division of McMillan.

Mr Corbett - Who won in the finish?

Dr KLUGMAN - He won in the finish. However, it is interesting that the honourable member received 8,000 votes and won whereas a person like myself had to get 36,000 votes to win.

Mr Corbett - Congratulations.

Dr KLUGMAN - Thank you very much. I assume that if I were a member of the League of Rights I would not have received 36.000 votes; I probably would have received less than 8,000 of the votes cast in my electorate. I seek leave to incorporate the figures for the Division of McMillan in Hansard.
