I Parliamentary. In the House of Lords, on Thursdav, the Marquess of Salisbury, in reply to the Earl of Marquess of Salisbury, in reply to the Earl of Kimberley, said So far as we know. Admiral Seymour has been relieved and is safe. (Cheers.) But. that statement, I think, comes rather from other sources of information than those of her Majesty's Government. Beyond that we know nothing of the position of Sir Claude Macdonald and of the other Legations. I think there is every ground for believing that no violence has yet been done to them. But that can only be stated in a hypo- thetical form. With respect to the future, I think the noble lord knows that from all quarters such troops as can be obtained are being hurried forward, but it will probably be some time before they arrive. Several questions were set down in the House of Commons on Thursday as to the treatment of the British sick and wounded in South Africa. Mr. Balfour read an exhaustive statement from Lord Roberts, in which the Commander-in-chief sugges- ted the formation of a small committee to proceed to South Africa, to inquire into and furnish a full report of the working of the medical arrange- ments. Mr. Balfour, promised that the matter should be fully debated to-day (Friday).
