§ MR. JERNINGHAM
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House a 435 Statement addressed to him by General E. M. Boxer on the subject of the alleged failure of the Boxer Cartridge in the late operations in the Soudan?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. W. H. SMITH)
The transactions to which this Memorandum refers occurred 15 years ago. There is much controversial matter in the statement; and as the ordinary means of publication are open to General Boxer, I must decline to present it officially to Parliament.
