§ 12. Mr. MILLS
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, shortly before Zaghloul Pasha was arrested, instructions were issued by the Ministry of the Interior at Cairo to Mr. Milton, the headmaster of the school at Assiut, to dismiss the students and convert the school into barracks for the soldiers stationed there and for the reception of other drafts which might replace them during the winter months; and who was responsible for issuing such an order since at the time that the order was issued no Egyptian Ministry existed?
I have no information as to the measures taken to provide accommodation for troops at Assiut.
I am very unwilling to trouble the Egyptian Government. The hon. Member has asked a question which would make very considerable demands on time.
