HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c455

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, seeing that Dr. Chweiback, whose claim for restitution of property taken from him during the South African war has been only in small part met, was admittedly engaged in the Rod Cross medical service, and seeing that the claim, after being rejected, was officially admitted to have real foundation, he will consider the advisability of the case being re-examined on international grounds and in the interests of the general maintenance of the voluntary Red Cross service during war.


The Secretary of State does not consider that the circumstances stated by the hon. Member afford a ground for reopening the case in the absence of frosh evidence.
