HC Deb 15 February 1901 vol 89 c170
MR. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, for the convenience of Members, he will have placed in the Tea Room a map of the portions of Cape Colony which the Boers have recently taken possession of, similar to those already placed there of the Orange Free State and Transvaal.


The Boers have not taken possession of any portion of the Cape Colony, though their columns have moved through parts of the colony closely pursued by His Majesty's troops. A map shall be placed in the Library.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say how much of that portion of Cape Colony have His Majesty's forces surrendered to General De Wet?


Order, order!
