§ COLONEL NOLAN (Galway, N)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can give the House any information as to the five soldiers sentenced to death at Pretoria for being concerned in a military riot.
§ MR. BRODRICK
No, sir. No report has been forwarded to the War Office. I have telegraphed for a report, but the hon. and gallant Gentleman is aware that, as these men were tried by the civil power, they have passed out of the jurisdiction of the War Office.
§ COLONEL NOLAN
I would like to address the same Question to the Secretary of State for the Colonies.
