HC Deb 28 June 1926 vol 197 cc801-2
31. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he now has information as to the intention of the Egyptian Government to apply for membership of the League of Nations; and whether he can now state the attitude of His Majesty's Government to such application?


There is nothing to add to the reply I gave to the hon. and gallant Member on this subject on the 14th June last.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

How is it that the right hon. Gentleman has not bad the report of the speech from the Throne in the Egyptian Parliament in which it was stated that application for membership was to be made?


I replied that I had no information beyond the reported statement and that I was not prepared at this stage to define the atti- tude of His Majesty's Government in circumstances which are still purely hypothetical. To that I have nothing to add.
