§ 26. Mr. BUTCHER
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will state the date when the grass farm at Witley of 150 acres was presented to the Government for 21 years at a peppercorn rent, and the number of horses which are now kept on that farm for military purposes; and what is the total number of horses which the Government expect to accommodate on grass farms before October next?
§ Colonel SEELY
The grass farm in question was presented on 17th July, 1911. There are now ninety-nine horses on the farm. The grazing arrangements are for Cavalry horses only, and it is expected that about 650 Cavalry remounts will be accommodated on grass by next October.
