§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the Government has decided upon reinforcing the troops at the Cape to a total of 40,000 men, of which number 15,000 would go from India, and the remainder from this country.
§ MR. DAVITT (Mayo, S.)
Has the hon. Gentleman's attention been called to statements to that effect in several London newspapers recently, and is there any foundation for them?
§ * MR. WYNDHAM
We see a great many things in the papers. There are obvious objections to inviting the representatives of the War Office to correct the rumours that are published.
