§ 1. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is intended that an official delegation from Egypt be invited to the Lausanne Conference; if so, who will appoint this delegation; and when elections were last held in Egypt?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Ronald McNeill)
If the Egyptian Government express the wish, and are invited to send a delegation to Lausanne, its appointment will rest with them. The elections for the Legislative Assembly were last held in 1913.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Has there been any correspondence with the Egyptian Government on the question of an Egyptian delegation to the Lausanne Conference?
§ 9. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any official information to give to the House with regard to the progress at Lausanne in reference to the freedom of the Straits?
§ Mr. McNEILL
I cannot usefully make any statement as to the discussions actually in progress at the Lausanne Conference.
§ Mr. R. PATTINSON
Is it correct, as reported in the Press to-day, that, with regard to this question of the freedom of the Straits, the Allies are not pursuing at present a common policy?
§ Mr. McNEILL
I have just said I cannot usefully make any statement with regard to discussions in progress at the Lausanne Conference.
