HC Deb 08 May 1906 vol 156 c1162

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can state what report was brought back from El Arish by His Majesty's Ship "Minerva" with reference to the alleged removal of boundary pillars by Turkish troops; and whether he can make any statement as to the general progress of the negotiations between the Turkish and Egyptian Governments.


The Captain of His Majesty's Ship "Minerva" reported that the boundary pillars had been removed, and some Egyptian telegraph poles in Egyptian territory had been replaced by others.
