§ SIR ROBERT FOWLER (London)
asked the Under Secretary of State' for Foreign Affairs, Whether it is the fact that Her Majesty's Government contemplate allowing Zebehr Pasha to return to Egypt; and, if so, whether any precautions will be taken to prevent his going to the Soudan?
§ MR. DILLON (Mayo, E.)
asked, whether it was true that Zebehr Pasha had been made to sign a paper before he was released; and, if so, by what authority, and under what law, these conditions were imposed?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
It has been decided to allow Zebehr Pasha to return to Egypt. He has signed an engagement to remain in the place which shall be chosen by the Egyptian Government, to place himself under its surveillance, and to abstain from interference in political or military questions relating to the Soudan or otherwise. These conditions had been imposed by the Government of Egypt; and if the hon. Member for East Mayo (Mr. Dillon) requires any further information it would be better that he should put a Question on the Paper.
