HC Deb 14 August 1911 vol 29 c1568

asked the Undersecretary for War whether a large consignment of Russian oats is being loaded at St. Petersburg for the use of British Cavalry regiments in Great Britain; and, if so, has he taken into consideration the fact that foot-and-mouth disease is prevalent in Russia and the importation of oats is therefore a danger to the live stock of this country?

Colonel SEELY

Nothing is known in the War Office of any such consignment of oats.
