§ MR. J. G. HUBBARD
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he will, without waiting for the Budget, state to the House whether any, and, if any, what interference the Government contemplate with regard to Egyptian finances?
§ MR. COURTNEY
Sir, on behalf of my right hon. Friend, I have to reply that it is quite out of his power to say now when any statement may be made to the House as to Egyptian Finance, or whether the Budget, which he hopes to open on the 24th instant, will contain any reference to that subject.
