§ Mr. Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements are made to ensure that British Army horses, no longer required for Army service, should not eventually be sold in Continental markets without guarantee against subsequent ill-treatment?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
Horses no longer required for the Army, if passed as fit for sale by public auction, are sold in the open market with a sufficiently high reserve price to make it unprofitable for them to be bought for export.
§ Sir R. Gower
asked the Secretary of State for War how many British Army horses have been purchased by or on behalf of the German Government during the past two years?
