HC Deb 21 June 1901 vol 95 c1055
MR. LLOYD-GEORGE (Carnarvon Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will state when and by whom communications were made to the Boer leaders asking them to undertake the responsibility of feeding the women and children in the denuded districts; whether they were accompanied by an assurance that the food supplies provided by the Boers for that purpose would not be taken away or destroyed by the British troops; and whether he will lay on the Table of the House the correspondence, if any, which passed on the subject.


Information on some of these points will be found in the correspondence relating to farm-burning which I propose shortly to lay upon the Table of the House.
