HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 cc1217-8W
Wing-Commander James

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has any further statement to make upon the taking of horses by the War Office in the early days of the war?

Sir V. Warrender

My hon. and gallant Friend has brought to notice that there has been misapprehension as to the basis on which horses were acquired by the War Department. I am obtaining advice on this matter, and I regret I am not yet in a position to make any further statement.
