§ SIR J. CLARKE JERVOISE
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, seeing that the Egyptian authorities have removed the quarantine restrictions on arrivals from Abys- 1396 sinia, Whether the impediments to the navigation between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean have been removed; and whether the Correspondence on the subject with the Turkish Government will be distributed, and when?
, in reply, said, he did not see any close affinity between the two Questions put by the hon. Baronet; but he might observe that those restrictions, although they had been modified, in favour of our troops returning from Abyssinia had not been removed altogether. With regard to the impediments to the navigation between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, he had stated some weeks ago that representations upon the subject had been addressed to the Turkish Government, but he had as yet received no answer to those representations. When the Correspondence was concluded, he would be prepared to lay it before the House.
