HC Deb 05 November 1934 vol 293 c647
80. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether there is any official prohibition against British officers taking part in the Dublin Horse Show?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Douglas Hacking)

No, Sir. Invitations have been received from the Royal Dublin Society for a British Army team to compete in the International Military Jumping Competition, which have not been accepted on the ground of interference with the requirements of military training. Applications from individual officers to compete under their own arrangements would be considered on their merits.
