§ Mr. JOHN ROBERTSON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he can yet state whether the rules recently framed by the Egyptian Minister of Public Works for the control of all building work in Cairo are the result of a modification of the capitulations by consent of the Powers; or whether it has been found that the capitulations present no obstacle to these and other reasonable enactments in the public interest?
§ Mr. McKINNON WOOD
We have not yet received a reply to the inquiry on this subject which, in accordance with the promise given to the hon. Member on March 30th, we addressed to His Majesty's Agent and Consul-General at Cairo.
