I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he proposes to, take his proposal as to financial aid to the Egyptian Government in respect of the military advance up the Nile, and in what manner it will impose financial obligations upon the British Exchequer?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH,) Bristol, W.
I am afraid I cannot say when the statement will be made.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
The arrangement of the business of the House does not rest with me.
