The Military Board do not really say definitely whether the allowance has been stopped. They do not say that these officers do not possess horses, and they give no reason why the recommendation of the present Commandant should not be acted upon or taken into consideration as well as the recommendation of the late Commandant, who, at the time he made it, was a very sick man, and died very shortly afterwards. It seems to me on the face of the papers that for some reason or another the paymaster over there is determined that these warrant and non-commissioned officers shall not be given horse allowance.

Senator Millen - Does the honorable senator suggest that horse allowance should be paid to men who are not required to possess a horse?
