§ MR. YERBURGH () Chester
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the War Commission will take evidence as to the manner in which the young soldiers endured the hardships of the campaign and withstood the attack of disease.
§ The following Question also appeared on the Paper:—
§ CAPTAIN NORTON () Newington, W.
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the terms of reference to the Royal Commission on the South African War, and in view of the fact that General Sir Redvers Buller was Adjutant General of the Army from 1st October, 1890 to 30th September, 1897, he will use his influence to secure the calling of General Buller to give evidence before the Commission.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton
In reply to 1056 these two Question, I am desired by my right hon. friend to say that the nature of the evidence called for by the Royal Commission rests entirely with that body. My right hon. friend has no influence whatever in the matter.
