MR. BRYN ROBERTS (Carnarvonshire, Eifion)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether Commandant Scheepers denied the charges made against him on his trial by court martial, and whether his witnesses, or most of them, were in the field with the Boer Army; and, if so, what means were afforded him†See preceding volume, p. 1094.512 of producing witnesses for his defence; whether Commandant Scheepers was charged with being a rebel, but denied that he was a British subject; and, if so, was the point of international law decided by subordinate military officers; and whether such officers had any and what legal assistance.
§ MR. BRODRICK
May I refer the hon. Member to my reply to a question put on this subject on the 28th ultimo by the hon. Member for Merthyr Tydvil.†I have no further information to give at present.
