HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 cc27-8

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether General Dixon's despatch, giving an account of the battle of Vlakfontein, has yet been received; if so, whether he will lay it upon the Table, together with the full details which he is to communicate to the House in reference to that battle; whether he will also communicate to the House the sworn evidence as to killing of British wounded, promised in Lord Kitchener's despatch; and whether any reply has been received from General Delarey to the communication which Lord Kitchener addressed to him in reference to the alleged killing of British wounded at Vlakfontein.


Yes, Sir. The despatch will be laid immediately. In answer to the second paragraph, we have not yet received the sworn evidence. The answer to the third paragraph is "No."
