HC Deb 20 December 1932 vol 273 c885

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office how the number of Army remounts purchased from Northern Ireland during the past three months compares with the number purchased in the similar period in 1931; whether any of the remounts so purchased during the current year are of Irish Free State origin; and whether it is intended to continue to obtain so large a proportion of Army remounts outside Great Britain?


The number of remounts purchased in Northern Ireland during the three months September to November of the present year was 90, and during the same period last year was 87. I have no information as to whether any of these horses were of Irish Free State origin. The policy of purchasing as many horses as possible within the United Kingdom is being continued.
