HC Deb 23 January 1902 vol 101 cc652-3
MR. M'LAREN (Leicester, Bosworth)

I beg to ask the first Lord of the Treasury, whether, in the month of July of last year, or at any other time since the negotiations between Lord Kitchener and General L. Botha took place, any proposals with a view to a settlement of the war in South Africa have been conveyed, directly or indirectly, to any member of the Cabinet on behalf of the leaders of the Boers.


No, Sir, no proposal of the kind has reached us on the part of any one who is able to speak for the leaders of the Boer forces.
