§ MR. SWIFT MACNE1LL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Mrs. Steyn, the wife of President Steyn, of the Orange Free State, after her capture by the British forces, was taken to Bloemfontein; and detained as a prisoner of war; whether this lady is still detained as a prisoner of war; and, if so, will he say on what grounds her detention is based.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
I have no information in regard to this lady.
