HC Deb 08 March 1886 vol 303 c117
MR. PORTMAN (Dorsetshire, N.)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether the recommendations of Sir Charles Warren have been fully recognised in the distribution of rewards to the officers commanding the different branches of the late Bechuanaland Expeditionary Force, to whose share in the brilliant success of the enterprise Sir C. Warren has publicly and repeatedly testified; and, if not, whether Her Majesty's Government will still consider the cases of the officers who were in command of the Royal Engineers, Royal Artillery, the line of communications, and of the Medical Department?


Full weight was given to the recommendations of Sir Charles Warren when the question was considered by the War and Colonial Offices, and I cannot undertake to re-open the question.
