HC Deb 03 March 1908 vol 185 cc525-6

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received a document, signed by several members of the Egyptian Legislative Council and of the General Assembly, protesting against Lord Cromer's attitude towards certain resulutions passed by the General Assembly, and whether he will advise the Government of Egypt favourably to consider the most important of these resolutions, and more especially those relating to education.


I have received the document referred to. Lord Cromer stated in his Report that some of the points to which resolutions of the General Assembly direct attention are certainly well worthy of consideration. I see nothing in this statement to cause dissatisfaction, but I cannot say more till the Annual Report from Sir El don Gorst is received.
