HC Deb 17 February 1914 vol 58 c749
16. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether the Government proposes to increase the British garrison in Egypt?

Colonel SEELY

I am not in a position to make any statement on this subject.

Sir J. D. REES

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether, in view of our naval weakness in the Mediterranean, this subject is under consideration?

Colonel SEELY

I cannot accept the statement in the hon. Gentleman's question.


Could not the troops be shifted from South Africa to Egypt?
