THE EARL OF CAENARVON
asked, Whether the Government had received any confirmation of the report that Berber had fallen?
§ LORD CARLINGFORD (LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL)
No; I should say they had not. I have seen the telegrams on the subject which are circulated among the Members of the Cabinet, and the last information of the Government — a telegram which I have seen within the last hour — is to the effect that the statement of the fall of Berber is still open to great doubt. I am unable to say more than that the statement is not finally ascertained to be true.
