§ * MR. REES
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Lord 158 Cromer prescribed certain restrictions upon company promotion in Egypt, with a view to the protection of the investing public; and if the Answer be in the affirmative, whether he will inform the House what such restrictions were.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. RUNCIMAN,, for Sir EDWARD GREY) Dewsbury
My right hon. friend can only refer the hon. Member to the heading "Mining Concessions" in Lord Cromer's Report for 1903, page 29.
