HC Deb 01 April 1881 vol 260 c462

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is the case that certain Regiments which ought to have gone to the Transvaal were not sent in consequence of the notorious incompetency of their commanding officers?


I saw this statement in a weekly paper; but I am happy to say that it is absolutely without foundation. I am much obliged to my hon. and gallant Friend for asking me the Question.
