HC Deb 04 April 1873 vol 215 c603

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is true, as has been stated on high authority, that a troop horse bred in the Government studs in India costs the State £205; what are the intentions of the Government with respect to the maintenance of these studs; and, whether he can lay any Papers before the House which will give any information as to their condition and management?


I am unable, Sir, to reply categorically to my hon. Friend's first Question, but the cost is certainly great, and greater than is desirable. In reply to his second Question, I have to say that the whole subject of the studs is under consideration. In reply to his third Question, I have to say that there will be no objection to produce the Correspondence if he will move for it after it is complete.
