§ LORD EUSTACE CECIL
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether, in view of the very menacing attitude adopted by the military party in Egypt, according to the latest accounts, effective measures have been taken to protect the Khedive from personal violence?
§ SIR CHARLES W. DILKE
It is the opinion of Her Majesty's Government that the Khedive, whose conduct 665 has been perfectly straightforward and courageous, is entitled to the full support of ourselves, of Europe, and the Porte. Her Majesty's Government would be sorry to acknowledge the possibility of such an outrage as personal violence to His Highness, and, in point of fact, they do not apprehend such a danger.
