§ CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whet her he is now in a position to state when the Royal Commission to inquire into the late war in South Africa will be appointed, also the composition of the Committee and the scope of its investigations.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
The answer to the hon. and gallant Member's Question is in the negative; but effort is being made to complete the necessary arrangements.
