HC Deb 29 April 1908 vol 187 cc1236-7
MR. NEWNES (Nottinghamshire, Bassetlaw)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether a scheme has been put forward for the purpose of encouraging the breeding of horses for the use of the Army; if so, whether he can give the details of this scheme; and whether he can state what he proposes to do in this matter.


I am not yet able to give my hon. friend any information beyond that which has already been given to the House to the effect that the negotiations with the Board of Agriculture are proceeding satisfactorily.

EARL WINTERTON (Sussex, Horham)

Was the account of the proposed scheme which appeared in the Press official or was it a leakage?


I am afraid I must ask for notice.
