HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1266
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what steps have been taken by His Majesty's Government to impress upon the Government of the Khedive the necessity of taking drastic action to deal with the agitation of the Nationalist Party in Egypt.

(Answered by Secretary Sir Edward Grey.) I must give the hon. Member the same Answer that I have given to other requests from other quarters of the House to interfere in Egypt in matters in which His Majesty's Government have full confidence in the discretion of His Majesty's representative. I do not propose to send any special instructions on this subject.
