HC Deb 22 February 1900 vol 79 c786
MR. HAYDEN () Roscommon, S.

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, before distributing amongst Roman Catholic soldiers serving in South Africa the prayer reported to have been composed by His Grace the Protestant Archbishop of Armagh and circulated by order of Lord Roberts, the military authorities have consulted, or intend to consult, the Roman Catholic chaplains serving with the Army in South Africa.


This is a matter entirely within the discretion of the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief in South Africa.
