I beg to move, in page 4, line 38, to leave out from the beginning, to "published," in line 39, and to insert "A defamatory statement."

Perhaps, with permission, I might also discuss the following Amendment: In page 4, line 41, at the end, to insert: shall not be deemed to be published on a privileged occasion on the ground that it is material to a question in issue in the election, whether or not the person by whom it is published is qualified to vote at the election.
