MR. JOSEPH A. PEASE (Essex Saffron Walden)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether he can state to what extent the Dutch in South Africa are assisting the forces of His Majesty the King, and if he can give the approximate number of Dutchmen now serving in South Africa under the British flag.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (MR. BRODRICK, SURREY, Guildford)
Certain burghers of the late Republics in South Africa have been formed into a Burgher Corps of Scouts. At present some 2,000 are so employed, and are doing excellent service.
