I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that Her Majesty's Government in their status as co-dominus are watching with the closest concern the interests of the Southern Sudanese. In these, as in other matters, we are scrupulously abiding by the terms of the Anglo-Egyptian Agreement. Meanwhile, our information leads us to believe that the Sudan Government, in taking measures to restore order after the mutiny of 18th August, have acted with restraint and with due regard for legal processes.
