HC Deb 31 May 1894 vol 25 c24

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, considering the exceptionally high price of straw, he can see his way to allow licensed victuallers who have to provide billets for Her Majesty's troops to supply moss litter instead of straw, or, failing this, to raise the price allowed for billeting?


Moss litter is not generally approved of by the Military Authorities, and probably the price of straw will not remain at its present high rate.
