§ MR. R. N. FOWLER (LORD MAYOR)
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the attention of Government has been called to the neglected state of the graves of the officers and soldiers killed at Bronkhaus Spruit; and, whether the British Resident at 462 Pretoria has taken any steps in the matter?
§ MR. EVELYN ASHLEY
This subject has not been lost sight of. I would refer the hon. Member to Command Paper 3,419, pages 41 and 85, by which he will see that in 1882 steps were taken to enclose the burial place by a solid wall. I may add that the Resident at Pretoria paid another visit to the graves last December and directed some small necessary repairs.
