HC Deb 27 April 1900 vol 82 c117
MR. CALDWELL (Lanarkshire, Mid)

On behalf of the hon. Member for Kirkcaldy, I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can state the name of the officer in immediate command of the convoy captured at Koorn Spruit.


No, Sir. I do not know what officer commanded the baggage train of the 2nd regiment of cavalry, the i battalion of mounted infantry, and the two batteries of Royal Horse Artillery, under Brigadier-General Broadwood.


Will the hon. Gentleman make inquiry?


I shall certainly do nothing of the kind. General Broadwood has made a report to Lord Roberts, who can take what action he may think necessary.
