HC Deb 30 April 1908 vol 187 c1396
MR. J. M. ROBERTSON (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government has received from the Consul-General at Cairo information as to the recent increase of crime in Egypt, and notably in the Behera district; and what effective steps, if any, are now being taken to put a check on the murder, robbery, arson, and other serious offences, which Lord Cromer, on page 85 of his Annual Report for 1906, described as the most unsatisfactory feature in the Egyptian situation.


The Question is dealt with in Sir Eldon Gorst's Report for 1907 (on pages 22, 23, and 29), which will, it is hoped, he laid before Parliament on Monday next.
