§ 8. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what forces are at present in 1855 occupation of Mecca, and whether an effective Government has been set up; whether an Emir has been appointed and whether he has taken office; and whether hostilities are still continuing in the Hedjaz?
The forces of Ibn Saud, the Sultan of Nejd, are at present in occupation of Mecca, which has come under his effective government. According to my information, no Emir of Mecca has been appointed. Hostilities are still continuing in the Hedjaz
