HL Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 c12

The noble Earl the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies has asked me to postpone the following question standing in my name—namely: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the cattle and other property of combatants Boers are to be exempted from seizure, and, if so, for what reason; also, to ask whether the Zulus and other natives whose country may be invaded by the Boers are prohibited from defending themselves from invasion, and, if so, for what reason. I have agreed to do so.
