§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, East)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any stores and arms belonging to the Egyptian Government have been despatched to the Transvaal, and under what authority.
§ * THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
Six Maxim guns have been obtained from Egypt for Her Majesty's forces, with the consent of Her Majesty's Agent and Consul General and of the Sirdar. They will be replaced from this country.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal S.)
Were the guns removed with the consent of the Egyptian Government? That is the question.
