HC Deb 19 March 1923 vol 161 c2085
50. Mr. CLYNES

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to recent reports showing the existence of a grave situation in Egypt; whether he can make any statement thereon; and whether he can indicate what steps are now being taken to establish a responsible and representative Government in Egypt?


I have no knowledge as yet of the intentions of the new Egyptian Government in regard to constitutional reform, nor can I add anything to the statements made in reply to recent questions on the situation in Egypt.


May I ask the hon. Gentleman's attention to the first part of the question, and, particularly, has he seen the messages sent to this country by the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Mr. Spoor)?


I have seen some of the statements to which the right hon. Gentleman refers.
