HC Deb 11 December 1900 vol 88 c493

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether Lord Roberts accepted the position of Commander-in-Chief subject to the conditions laid down by Order in Council, 21st November, 1895, which defines the duties and responsibilities attached to that office; and, if so, whether Lord Roberts will, like Lord Wolseley when Commander-in-Chief, be only one of several military advisers of the Secretary of State, as provided by that Order in Council.


No change has taken place in the status of Commander-in-Chief since Lord Roberts accepted office.
