HC Deb 07 June 1901 vol 94 cc1317-8

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether Lord Kitchener corresponds only with the War Office, or whether, since he has become Acting Lord High Commissioner as well as Commander-in-Chief of His Majesty's Forces in South Africa, he also corresponds with the Colonial Office.


Lord Kitchener corresponds with the War Office on all military affairs, and with the Colonial Office on all business connected with the office of High Commissioner.
