That this Bill be now read a second time.

Upon which Senator St. Ledger had moved -

That all the words after the word " That " be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the following words : - " in the opinion of theSenate the public interest calls for increase rather than the curtailment of voting facilities, and that in particular the system of voting by post should not be abolished, but should be extended under proper safeguards, and simplified."

Senator MILLEN(New South Wales)
