§ 33. Colonel CLIFTON BROWN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is satisfied that the effect of the withdrawal of the light-horse breeding subsidy borne until recently on the Vote of his Department is in the best interests of the country; and, if not, will he state what measures he proposes to adopt to remedy the situation?
§ Mr. COOPER
My hon. and gallant Friend is probably aware that the grants for the encouragement of light-horse breeding were discontinued solely on the ground of economy. The question of the resumption of a grant from Army funds is under consideration, but I am unable at present to give any indication as to whether it will be found possible to make a grant.
§ Mr. SMITHERS
May I ask whether, if it is not found possible to continue the whole of the grant, they will continue as much of it as is possible?
