§ 83. Sir JOHN SPEAR
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if it is proposed to supply troops in garrison with frozen meat only, to the exclusion of home-killed meat; and will soldiers in camp be given British or foreign meat?
Except where local contracts for home-killed meat are more convenient, troops in camp and garrisons in Great Britain are supplied with frozen meat obtained in part from Colonial sources. In Ireland troops are at present fed on home-killed meat.
§ Sir J. SPEAR
Does not the hon. Gentleman think that this places an embargo on the home producers of meat, and that it will act as a deterrent and reduce the supply of home-produced meat?
