HC Deb 17 August 1916 vol 85 cc2081-2W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that French Army officers' horses are usually purchased at a much higher figure than is allowed by the British Government; and whether, under those circumstances, leave will be given for the sale of this class of remounts for exportation to France?


The War Office have no information in the sense of the first part of the question. All horses in the United Kingdom which are serviceable are required for the British Army.
