Senator PEARCE - The answer to the honorable senator's question is : -

Yes; and approval has been given for the formation of a band in connexion with each battalion of Senior Cadets. In view, however, of the large expenditure necessary in providing essential articles of equipment for the Naval and Military Forces, it is regretted that the granting of any financial assistance in the direction suggested is at present impracticable.
