HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 c59
MR. LOUGH () Islington, W.

I bog to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the information in the hands of the Government shows that the number of Cape Colonists who are joining the forces of the Boers is increasing; whether the withdrawal of British troops from the neighbourhood of Rensburg has been hastened by the disaffection of the inhabitants; and whether the area of disaffection throughout the colony is increasing.


I have no information on this point which I can give to the hon. Member.
