HC Deb 09 July 1883 vol 281 cc791-2

asked Mr. Attorney General, If his attention has been called to the opinion recently given by two English counsel relative to the concession of the Turkish and Egyptian Governments to M. de Lesseps for the construction of the Suez Canal; and, if he will be good enough to cause a copy of the concession to be printed and placed upon the Table of the House?


Sir, the attention of Her Majesty's Government has already been directed to the opinion referred to by my hon. Friend. The concessions, &c., relating to the Suez Canal were laid before Parliament in 1876 (Egypt, No. 6).
