HC Deb 05 November 1909 vol 12 c2254W

asked the Secretary of State for War what are the last steps taken to encourage the rearing of horses for military purposes in Wales; and whether he is aware that exceptionally good horses are bred in Montgomeryshire?


An officer has been twice in Wales during the last few months for purchasing horses, but has only been able to buy a few. The same officer, however, annually purchases a considerable number of horses at Crewe and Wrexham, many of which, no doubt, are bred in Wales.
