§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is satisfied that a sufficient number of horses would be forthcoming, both for Regular and Territorial Forces, in case of War; and whether, in view of the increase of automobile traction and the decrease of horse-drawn vehicles, further steps are to be taken to secure an adequate supply; and, if so, What does he propose to do in the matter.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) From the information at the disposal of the War Office there appears to be a sufficient number of horses in the United Kingdom both for Regular and Territorial Forces in case of War. As I have already explained in the House, the question of horse supply is engaging my close attention.
