2. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether recent developments in Turkey, Mesopotamia, Persia, and the Middle East will occasion any changes in the administration of Egypt or in the political direction of affairs in these countries?


No changes of the nature referred to by the hon. Member are at present in contemplation.

Sir J. D. REES

Does not the direction of affairs in Egypt at present possess a paramount importance compared with that of previous conditions, and is not any change contemplated there in consequence?


There are no changes contemplated in the political direction of affairs, but, of course, there may be military changes according to the progress of the War.
