Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I merely desire to say that I have received from the Minister such a reply as I anticipated, in view of the definite statement which I made. I only wish to supplement what I have already said by directing attention to the possibility of confusion arising from the useof the two terms " store " and " dry canteen." Colonel Holmes, in his report, deals exclusively with the . supply store, from which he says no goods are sold to- the troops, whereas Private Campbell makes the definite statement that the pyjamas were purchased at the dry canteen. Having directed attention to the possibility of misunderstanding, owing to the confusion that might otherwise arise from the use of these two terms, I have no desire to say anything further. I ask leave to withdraw the motion.

Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
