asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that the Mahommedan population of Egypt have this year abandoned the festal ceremony of the beginning of Ramadan as a protest against Zaghloul Pasha's exile, and that the Coptic population also abandoned for the same reason the feast of Easter; and whether His Majesty's Government has taken these facts into consideration in regard to the policy of returning Zaghloul Pasha to his home?

I have no information regarding the alleged action of the Mahommedan population of Egypt, nor, as I have already informed the hon. Member on 3rd May, regarding that of the Coptic population. The last part of the question does not therefore arise.
