§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether he will state how many rounds of ammunition to a man were there in the camp of Tweefontein at the time of the attack and capture of that camp by the Boers; how many rounds of ammunition did the Boers capture; and can he explain why the public have not been placed in possession of this information.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (MR. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
Lord Kitchener has not thought it necessary to forward any information on this subject, so I do not imagine the amount to be large.
