§ MR. J. M. ROBERTSON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is in contemplation, on the part of the Egyptian Government, to reduce the addition made to the costs of the Army of Occupation after the Denshawi incident in 1906.
§ SIR EDWARD GREY
I must refer the hon. Member to the reply returned 236 by me on 14th May to the Question asked by the hon. Member for East Tyrone (on behalf of the hon. Member for East Mayo): the increase made in 1906 had been decided upon before the Denshawi incident took place, and there was no increase made in consequence of that incident. No change is at present in contemplation.
