Agar Rodney Adamson

Mr. Adamson:

Mr. Speaker, the purpose

of this bill is to provide that the poll clerk shall represent a different political interest from that of the deputy returning officer and thereby eliminate the necessity for candidates' agents at the poll. Part II deals with advance polls and brings the act into line with the new revised statutes which are now being printed and are expected to appear during this session.

Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.
