HC Deb 13 February 1914 vol 58 cc466-8W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether, in view of the fact that there is a King's premium stallion allotted to the county of Shropshire, he can say why no King's premium stallion has stood or travelled in South Shropshire for the last three years?


It has not been possible to provide more than one King's Premium stallion to Shropshire during the last three years, and its route has, on the advice of the Light Horse Breeding Committee for the county, been confined to the northern part of the county. Though unable to provide more than one King's Premium to the county, the Board have been prepared to award a Board's Premium to a stallion to travel in South Shropshire, but the County Committee have not been, able to recommend a horse for this grant. If they do so this season, the Board will give the recommendation favourable consideration.
