HC Deb 04 May 1882 vol 269 c98

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether it is within the competence of the present Egyptian Government, without the concurrence of the European Powers, to disturb the existing international arrangement under which the Civil List assigned to the Ex-Khedive, Ismail Pasha, is now paid; and, whether he can lay upon the Table of the House any Correspondence between the Foreign Office and Sir E. Mallet on the subject of the recent court-martial held on certain Egyptian Officers for alleged complicity in a conspiracy against Arabi Pasha?


Sir, I must ask my hon. Friend to postpone the first part of his Question. With regard to the second part, I fear that the Papers referred to cannot be laid before Parliament at present.
