HL Deb 20 January 1902 vol 101 c291

My Lords, I beg to give notice that on Monday next I shall move: That it is only by the vigorous prosecution of the war, and through the surrender of the Boer Guerilla Forces still in the field, that a satisfactory and lasting peace can be assured, and this House approves in these respects, and heartily supports the action of His Majesty's Government. I give this notice as an independent Member of this House, and on my own initiative. I do not know whether I shall meet with support, but I am perfectly certain that if the Motion is carried by a large majority in your Lordship's House it will make for peace.
