HC Deb 25 April 1907 vol 173 cc268-9
MR. FELL (Great Yarmouth)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if his attention has been called to the language used by certain of the newspapers in Egypt in their references to the authorities and the Government; and whether, having regard to the condition of affairs there, he will consider the advisability of modifying the freedom of the Press, to the advantage of Egypt and its Government.


I must refer the hon. Member to Chapter 4 of Lord Cromer's Annual Report for 1906, where he will find a much fuller statement than can be conveyed in an Answer to a Question. It is not proposed to alter the policy there advocated.
