§ 29. Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the Secretary of State for War whether farm horses now in use in harvesting cereal crops in England and Wales will be exempted from being impressed for Army requirements?
§ 30. Mr. HARRY HOPE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of; the national necessity that crops should be harvested at present, he will take steps that, in requisitioning horses, farmers' horses will as much as possible be exempted?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
It has never been contemplated that farm horses shall be impressed except to a very slight extent, and orders have been issued that they are to be exempted as much as possible.
