HC Deb 31 March 1898 vol 55 c1474
MR. E. H. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, with reference to the fact that a few months ago an Army inspector visited the premises of Messrs. Macnamara, contractors to the Post Office, in order to inspect 200 horses belonging to them which are on the Army Reserve List, will he state whether it was in consequence of the inspector's Report that the War Office declined to pay the usual retainer fee on more than 100 of the horses?


Yes, Sir.
