§ MR. THOMAS DEWAR (Tower Hamlets. St. George's)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he is aware that Beer agents are actively engaged throughout Belgium enlisting recruits for the Beer forces; and whether the Government have taken or intend to take any steps by friendly representations to the Belgian Government, or otherwise, to prevent a continuance of same.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I have to say that we have received no information which leads us to think that recruiting of the kind referred to by my lion, friend is being carried on.
