HC Deb 09 July 1913 vol 55 c408
56. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he will personally make investigations into the traffic to the Continent of worn-out horses?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Runciman)

I will gladly investigate any complaints which may be made to me, if sufficient particulars are given.

Captain MURRAY

Is it not a fact that the majority of these animals are slaughtered for food on the other side, and, if that be the case, would it not be infinitely better to have them slaughtered on this side?
