§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether any investigation is to be made into the differences between Mr. Rhodes and Colonel Kekewich during the siege of Kimberley; and, whether Mr. Rhodes acted under any authority in his alleged interference with Colonel Kekewich in the discharge of his duties as commander at Kimberley.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The answer to the first paragraph is in the negative. Colonel Kekewich was the only person who had authority in regard to military dispositions, for the defence of Kimberley, and I am not aware that that authority was questioned.
