Murder of British Subjects.

Oral Answers to Questions — Egypt. – in the House of Commons on 6th July 1922.

Alert me about debates like this



asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will state who is conducting the inquiry into the recent murder of British subjects in Egypt; whether the British Government is taking part in this; and what is the present status of the British Government in relation to the Egyptian Government in such matters and general matters of administration?

The inquiry referred to is being conducted by the Egyptian Government, with such assistance from the British military authorities as may be properly afforded. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the correspondence published in the White Paper Egypt No. 1 (1922).
