HC Deb 06 March 1896 vol 38 c364

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he is aware that in the Customs House, Dublin, there is at present stored a large quantity of Russian oats, imported by contractors or intending contractors for the purpose of supplying Her Majesty's cavalry stationed in Ireland; and, whether in future tenders any provision will be made to prevent a preference to foreign imports and enable the native growers of corn to compete on reasonable terms?


It is not known at the War Office whether or not the facts are as stated by the hon. Member, and I can only repeat that the question of the supply of forage to the troops is under inquiry.

Forward to
