§ MR. BROADHURST (Leicester)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a number of the troops that were in Ladysmith during the siege have not yet received the chocolate sent for them by Her Majesty the Queen; whether there is any hope of their getting it, or an equivalent; and, if so, will men whose time has since expired be excluded.
* MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (Birmingham, S.)
It has not been reported that the troops who were in Ladysmith during the siege have not received the Queen's chocolate. Any claimants for the Queen's gift who have not received it should address their application to the General Officer Commanding the Lines of Communication, Cape Town, who has sole charge of the distribution.
