HC Deb 30 November 1933 vol 283 c1053
55. Mr. JOEL

asked the Minister of Agriculture if, in view of the anxiety of breeders as to the Government's policy, he can now make a further statement with regard to the result of his negotiations with the War Office in connection with horse breeding?


Following discussions between the Departments concerned the Government have now decided that the cost of the grant for light horse breeding, which was transferred in 1923 to the War Office from the Ministry, should not be re-transferred. Any question as to the renewal of the grant is, therefore, one for my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the War Office, to whose reply on Tuesday last to a question on the subject by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Hexham (Colonel D. Brown) I would refer my hon. Friend.
