HC Deb 19 November 1908 vol 196 c1407
MR. STANIER (Shropshire, Newport)

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, if the Board can now give a report as to the cause of death of the seven horses, the property of Mr. John Parton, of Bennett's Bank, Wellington, Salop, in July last; and, if so, will he supply the report.


From inquiry made there seems no doubt that the horses died from poisoning, but it has not been ascertained how they came in contact with the poisonous substance. I shall be happy to show the hon. Member a copy of our inspector's Report on the matter.
