HC Deb 18 June 1901 vol 95 cc701-2
MR. O'SHEE (Waterford, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can inform the House if the Boer general Prinsloo and the force of more than 4,000 men who surrendered with him in 1900 were all detained as prisoners of war and deported to St. Helena or elsewhere.


The majority of the men who surrendered with General Prinsloo were detained as prisoners of war, and are now in Ceylon.
