HC Deb 01 February 1900 vol 78 c267
MR. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he authorised, or subsequently sanctioned to any extent, the pressure by the Governor of Natal on Sir George White not to withdraw at the outset of the war from Glencoe and concentrate at Ladysmith, on the ground that such a step would involve grave political results and possibilities of a serious nature.


I have to refer the hon. Member to the Papers which have been distributed, and which give all the information in my possession.
