§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he will state what the offence was of which Dr. Reinecke, a British subject residing at Ceres, in the Cape Colony, was suspected when he was arrested by the Military on the 27th August, 1901; whether he has since then been tried for such alleged offence; and, if so, by what tribunal, at what date, and with what result; and where is he now detained.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Dr. Reinecke, who served with Boer ambulance outside Ladysmith, was arrested on suspicion of communicating with the enemy, who were then threatening Ceres, where he was residing. He was subsequently released on bail, and is now being granted permission to proceed to Europe, his bail bonds being cancelled.
