§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR
asked the Prime Minister, If he could now state whether Prince Hassan was a functionary of the British Government or of the Egyptian?
I apprehend that the case is, as it was stated by my noble Friend the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, that Prince Hassan is to be considered as a person holding an appointment having relations with other persona who are under the authority of the Khedive of Egypt; but that that appointment was made with the approval and counsel of British functionaries in the Soudan.
§ SIR H. DRUMMOND WOLFF
asked the Prime Minister, Whether, as it had been publicly stated that Prince Hassan was to be made Governor of Khartoum, Her Majesty's Government would therefore prevent his going as Civil Commissioner with Lord Wolseley?
No; Her Majesty's Government do not intend to prevent his going as Civil Commissioner.
