HC Deb 14 November 1939 vol 353 c516
24. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give owners of suitable horses who are desirous of selling at a reasonable price an opportunity to register their names and addresses, together with the number and particulars of animals available, thus obviating the necessity of impressing or buying from unwilling sellers, and denuding some districts while others are left comparatively untouched?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Yes, Sir. The War Office will be most happy to act upon this suggestion.
