HC Deb 21 July 1898 vol 62 cc651-2
MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he proposes to take any steps to carry out the recommendation contained in the Report of the Commission appointed to inquire into the improvement of horse-breeding in Ireland, that greater aid should be given by the State to improve the breeding of horses in Ireland?


A discussion took place on this subject in another place on Tuesday last, and Lord Denbigh then stated that the Lord Lieutenant was considering the desirability of creating an authoritative body in Ireland similar to the Commission existing for that purpose in England, for the encouragement of pure and sound thoroughbred horses, and that the question of the financial arrangements was also being considered.
