§ MR. CHAELES HOBHOUSE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether horses belonging to the Woolwich Garrison are suffering or have recently suffered from epizootic lymphangitis; and whether it is proposed to employ any of the horses from this garrison on manœuvres.
MR. BEOMLEY DAVENPOET
There are at present forty-four horses Suffering from epizootic lymphangitis in the Woolwich Garrison, of which twenty-seven are convalescent and seventeen still under treatment. No horses will be taken to the manœuvres from units which have had a case of lymphangitis within two months of the date of the commencement of the manœuvres.
