asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Remount Department of the Northern Command have failed to supply suitable horses for defence units; and will he see that officers of the Remount Department are given instructions as to the type of horse required for the Royal Artillery?
So far as I am aware, no complaint has been made of any failure in this respect. The officer of the Remount Department on the Headquarters Staff of the Northern Command is a retired Artillery Officer and well aware of the type of horse required for the artillery, as also are the other remount officers in the Command. If my hon. and gallant Friend will furnish me with particulars of any case he has in mind, I will have the matter inquired into.
