§ MR. GIBSON
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether anything has yet been done to decide on the claim of the representatives of the late Mr. Ribton before the Indemnity Commission at Alexandria; and, what is the cause of the delay on the subject?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
Mr. Ribton's claim has not yet been decided upon. The smaller claims were dealt with first. Mr. Ribton's claim, which is among the larger amounts, will, it is understood, come up shortly for decision. I may add that the Commission is an International one, over which Her Majesty's Government have no control.
