Mr. LANCASTER.

I would suggest another case, and that is where a postmaster attends a court of revision to settle voters' lists. The postmaster is often the best informed man as to the age of people, as to where people were born and as to the qualifications generally of people in his neighbourhood. Would the hon. Postmaster General say that if a postmaster attended a Court of Revision, acting on one side or the other, acting honestly and 'giving correct information to the court it would be an improper interference in politics ?
