Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - With regard to the item of £8,000, I have given instructions that Senator Millen 's remarks shall be brought under the notice of the Minister of External Affairs, who, I have no doubt, will be glad to circulate information showing how the money is proposed to be spent. As to the £2,000 for horse breeding, I have to assure Senator Millen that it has no reference to the scheme for breeding horses for military purposes. Neither is this an experimental horsebreeding farm. It is simply proposed to carry- on a horse-breeding establishment that already exists in connexion with the overland telegraph line. The station has been in existence for some years. It has been carried on by the South Australian Government; and we took it over in connexion with the Northern Territory.
