asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information to the effect that on the day following the arrest of the eight members of the Egyptian Nationalist delegation, in the third week in January, 1922, the mixed bar in Cairo, composed of Egyptians and Europeans, went on strike as a protest against the repressive measures in Egypt?
