HC Deb 18 May 1897 vol 49 c729
MR. J. F. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the contention of local experts that the Australian horses are superior to those imported from Argentina, and the strongly expressed opinion to the same effect of British officers in India, he will consider the advisability of despatching to Australia a certain number of remount officers to investigate and report in this connection?


The horses at present wanted are for South Africa, and as it is believed that suitable Argentine horses can be delivered there at half the price of Australian horses it is not considered necessary to send to Australia.
