§ Mr. RAMSAY MACDONALD
I desire to ask the Foreign Secretary a question, of which I have given him private notice, namely: If he can state whether His Majesty's Agent and Consul-General in Egypt was consulted before the arrest of Alexandre Adamovitz in Alexandria; what was the specific charge on which he was arrested; whether the prisoner has been deported, and, if so, to what place; whether any correspondence on the matter has passed between the Russian Consul and the British Representative since the arrest; and, if so, will he communicate the gist of it to the House?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Acland)
I regret that my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has been so engaged this morning that I have not been able to get an answer to the question approved. No doubt my hon. Friend requires the information for to-morrow's Debate, and if he will repeat his question to-morrow at Question Time, I have no doubt an answer will be given.
