§ SIR GEORGE CAMPBELL
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he proposes to lay upon the Table further Papers regarding the administration of Egypt proper; the working of the autonomous institutions devised during Lord Dufferin's mission; the reforms of Mr. Clifford Lloyd; and his alleged high-handed promulgations of laws and orders in spite of both the Legislative Assembly and the Prime Minister; whether he will, in the meantime, say who is now responsible for the internal administration of the country; and, whether Mr. Clifford Lloyd acts in real effective subordination either to Nubar Pasha or to Mr. Egerton, or whether he has any independent mission from the Khedive or from Her Majesty's Government?
§ LORD EDMOND FITZMAURICE
Any despatches which may be received relating to the administration of Egypt, the working of the autonomous institutions and the reforms of Mr. Clifford Lloyd, will be laid on the Table in due course. The Egyptian Government are responsible for the internal administration of the country. Mr. Clifford Lloyd is Under Secretary for the Interior, and 1682 is, therefore, subordinate to the Minister of the Interior and the head of the Egyptian Government. He has no independent mission from the Khedive or from Her Majesty's Government.
