§ MR. WILLIAM ABRAHAM (Cork Co., N.E.)
; On behalf of the hon. Member for East Mayo, I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of the severe epidemic which has broken out amongst them, Boer prisoners at present confined in Simons Bay will be removed from the ships and transferred to healthy quarters on shore in Cape Colony.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
This question was fully answered by my hon. friend the Under Secretary for War last week,* and I really have nothing to add to the reply he read to this House.
