HC Deb 08 August 1904 vol 139 cc1352-3

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, before the final ratification of the Anglo-French agreement by His Britannic Majesty's Government, an opportunity will be afforded to the Egyptian people of expressing, through their chosen representatives on the Legislative Council and General Assembly, an opinion upon those of its provisions which relate to Egypt.


If the hon. Member will refer to Articles 23 and 37 of the Organic Law Egypt No. 19 (1883) he will see that questions of the kind referred to do not fall within the purview of either the Legislative Council or the General Assembly.
