HC Deb 28 April 1914 vol 61 c1543W
Colonel WALKER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that at a mounted parade with guns of the 3rd London Brigade, Royal Field Artillery Territorial Force, on 4th February last at Putney, the horses supplied had to travel nine miles each way before the parade, some of the horses having been worked the same morning; that there was hardly a draught horse among them suitable for horsing guns; and that 11 horses out of 48 were condemned after the parade as being quite unsuitable for the work or cruel to use for that purpose; and will he have an inquiry made into this case with a view to preventing horses of this description being so used?


Inquiry is being made into this matter.
