HC Deb 30 April 1907 vol 173 cc694-5
MR. J. M. ROBERTSON (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state under what law the Egyptian Government continues to penalise the entire population of the village of Denshawai by mulcting them in heavily increased payments for village watchmen, and by refusing to allow any inhabitant to commute military service by payment, besides degrading the village by making it technically subordinate to another of less size.


I am not aware that any special law was enacted or required for these matters, which seem to be purely administrative, and I have nothing to add to the Answers I previously given on this Question.
