HC Deb 03 August 1900 vol 87 c635
SIR CHARLES CAYZER (Barrow-in-Furness)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that in the official table of casualties since the beginning of the war in South Africa up to and including 28th July, the total losses are reported as 36,559 officers and men, and that this number includes 1,044 officers and 24,058 men, a total of 25,102, sent home as invalids, it can be stated in these Returns in future what number of officers and men sent home as invalids have died or have recovered, or are still invalids, in order to give an accurate return of the actual losses due to the war.


Yes, Sir. This information will in future, so far as possible, be given in the weekly statement of casualties. It is hoped that the figures can be prepared in time for inclusion in next week's table.
