15. Captain CRAIG
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the military authorities have removed the horses which were grazing on an evicted farm near Portarlington, King's County, as a consequence of a cattle and horse drive on 18th December last?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Colonel Seely)
It appears that some Army horses were, on the night of the 15th December last, let out from a grazing on the Ashtown estate which the officer commanding 16th Lancers had hired a few days previously The officer commanding decided to obtain grazing elsewhere, and removed the horses.
