HC Deb 14 May 1900 vol 83 c25
SIR J. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if, without divulging the plans of the Commander-in-Chief, he can make any statement which will mitigate the anxiety of many whose friends have been so long beleaguered and have suffered so many privations and hardships in Mafeking.


We hope, most earnestly, that Mafeking will shortly be relieved. But for the present we think it better to give no information as to Lord Roberts's plans.
