HC Deb 12 January 1894 vol 20 c1468

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the fact of the war in South Africa having been brought to a quick conclusion through the administration of the Hon. Cecil Rhodes, Dr. Jameson, and other Englishmen and Colonists, in a very short time, with comparatively small loss of life and little cost, and that during that short campaign many deeds of bravery have been performed, he will take into consideration the advisability of recommending the names of these successful men for such honours and distinctions as have been generally conferred by a grateful country at the conclusion of our wars?


I do not consider that the time has yet arrived, nor have Her Majesty's Government proper materials for considering this question.
