HC Deb 11 May 1908 vol 188 c720

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the statement in the Twelfth Report of the Royal Commission on Horse Breeding to the effect that horses are bought for military purposes now in the United Kingdom at the age of three years by representatives of foreign countries, and consequently the best are gone before the English authorities come into the market; and what steps he intends to take to secure the best horses for our own Army.


The attention of the Army Council has been drawn to this report and the whole question is at present receiving their consideration.
