HC Deb 29 November 1948 vol 458 c1616
27. Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the improved position with regard to the importation of feedingstuffs, he will arrange for an early increase in the present inadequate rations for working horses and ponies.

Mr. Strachey

I have no reason to believe that the present rations for working horses are inadequate.

Sir T. Moore

Surely, the right hon. Gentleman must be aware that horses and ponies cannot do their normal work on their present-day issues of feedingstuffs. One has only to look around the countryside and towns to see evidence of this.
