§ Captain SINCLAIR (Forfarshire)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can now state when the Government will publish the despatches relating to the military operations in South Africa which have taken place since the actions in February last at Spion Kop and at Stormberg.
§ The FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. Balfour,) Manchester, E.
I hope that if things go well in South Africa the despatches will be published very soon.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
Will the right hon. Gentleman give a guarantee that they will be published as originally sent, and not edited for publication?
