HC Deb 29 March 1900 vol 81 c689
MR. ROUND (Essex, Harwich)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office if his attention has been called to statements relative to the treatment of the troopers of the Imperial Yeomanry who, after embarking on board the steamship "Cornwall" at 10 a.m. on the 3rd of March, had no food served out to them till breakfast the next day, and then only two pieces of bread with Nestlé's milk spread on in lieu of butter, and nothing to drink, and for dinner two potatoes only; and if he can give any explanation of this treatment.


There is no information available as to the circumstances mentioned in the question, no report having yet come in from the officer commanding the troops on board.
