§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork Co, E)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state the number of horses purchased for the South African War which have been sold by public auction since the conclusion of the War, together with the average price paid and the average price received.
§ MR. BRODRICK
1,080 horses have been sold in England by public auction. I am not prepared to publish the prices.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
Has the right hon. Gentleman heard that some of those horses were sold at Aldridge's at between £5 and £6 apiece?
