§ MR. COCHRANE (Ayrshire, N.)
To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that Mr. Keeve, of Mooidam Farm, District Kroonstad, served in a corps of Boer scouts in aid of the British forces in South Africa; whether he is aware that his sheep were commandeered and his plantation and homestead destroyed; and whether he has received any compensation.
(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) The Secretary of State has no information as to the facts of the case mentioned by the hon. Member, but, while I am not able to hold out any hope of reopening the question of compensation claims, inquiry will be made if desired for the information of the hon. Member.
