MR. BRYNMOR JONES (Swansea District)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any, and, if so, what steps have been taken or are proposed to be taken to remove the financial difficulties imposed upon Egypt by the Laws of Liquidation referred to by Lord Cromer in several of his annual reports.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord CRANBORNE,) Rochester
The present arrangements must in any case remain in force till 1905. I hope, therefore, the hon. Gentleman will not press me to make any statement on this subject at present.
