asked the Prime Minister if a statement of the Government's policy in regard to Egypt is to be made at an early date; if so, when; and whether it will be preceded by the publication of the negotiations between the Government and its advisers in Egypt?
Yes, Sir. We propose to announce to Parliament to-morrow week the proposals with regard to Egypt for which we shall seek Parliamentary approval. A Parliamentary Paper will be laid that afternoon.
Any suggestions made to the Egyptian authorities will be made definitely on the understanding that they will have to be ratified by this House. That will be made quite clear.
It is a proposal which we intend to recommend to this country. In reply to the Noble Lord the Member for Hitchin (Lord R. Cecil), our intention was to give only the actual proposal in the White Paper. I am not sure that it is desiyable to publish the whole of the correspondence. I should like to ask Lord Allen[...]y's views about that.
