1900 - Hansard: Boer prisoners at St Helena - Shooting of Godefroy
Mr Dillon: I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in the case of the killing of Godefroy at St. Helena, an investigation before a coroner was demanded by the Boer prisoners, which demand was refused; and, if so, can he state why it was refused; whether at the military inquiry which did take place the friends of Godefroy were represented, and whether his representatives were allowed to cross-examine the military witnesses; whether the committee of Boer prisoners who communicated with the Governor in reference to this incident have sent in any statement; and, if so, whether such statement was considered by the court which conducted the inquiry; and whether he will allow the Member for East Mayo to have access to any correspondence which has passed between the Camp Committee, the Governor, and the President of the Court in reference to the shooting of Godefroy, and to the official record of the proceedings of the court.
The Secretary of State for War (Mr Broderick): I telegraphed last week to the Governor of St. Helena to forward by mail a full report on the circumstances of this occurrence. Until this arrives I shall not be in a position to answer the hon. Member's question.
