HC Deb 07 November 1912 vol 43 c1457W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any arrangements are being made to include in the horse reserve of the Army suitable horses for Artillery purposes

Colonel SEELY

An extension of the horse reserve of the Army will be carried out immediately. With the object of encouraging owners to keep horses suitable for Artillery purposes a special Artillery category of the horse reserve will be formed. An annual subsidy of £4 per horse, payable half-yearly in arrears, will be given for horses that are accepted for this category of the reserve.
