§ Mr. TOUCHE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will take steps to ensure that any Army horses found surplus to Army requirements in Egypt will be disposed of in such a way that they will not fall into the hands of undesirable owners?
§ Colonel GOODMAN
asked the Secretary of State for War what methods be employed in the disposal of the horses of cavalry and artillery units of the British Army quartered in Egypt when such units are mechanised?
§ Sir V. WARRENDER
All Army animals in Egypt which on the mechanisation of their unit cannot be absorbed into another unit, will be destroyed under military supervision. My hon. Friends may rest assured that none will be sold to the local inhabitants.
