HC Deb 28 May 1900 vol 83 cc1488-9
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can give the House any information as to the condition and treatment of British prisoners at Pretoria: and whether any overtures for the exchange of prisoners of War have been made by the Transvaal Government; if not, would any such overtures be favourably considered by the Government.


We have no information of the condition or evidence of the ill-treatment of British prisoners at Pretoria, and we have no confirmation of a statement that the Transvaal Government have proposed an exchange of prisoners.
