§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Lieut.-Colonel Sir R. Sanders)
During the recent disturbances in Alexandria British troops were called in 1055 to aid the civil authorities and they patrolled the town. No other military action was necessary. I do not know whether a British detachment was sent to Upper Egypt.
§ Earl WINTERTON
Is it not a fact that by Treaty and Convention we are bound to maintain order in Egypt, and is it not a fact that the foreign Consuls have made an application for protection?
