§ MR. W. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether arrangements are being made, and whether it is intended by the Government, to enable the producers of native meat and forage to tender upon more equable terms for the supplies to the troops and horses stationed in Great Britain and Ireland?
MR. J. POWELL WILLIAMS
I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member on the 25th March last.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
Is it not the fact that the only difference between the price of home-grown and foreign meat consists in the cost of slaughtering the cattle?
