§ 9. Mr. PONSONBY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Report on the Nile water drawn up on the instructions of His Majesty's Government will be published?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The findings of the Commission appointed by agreement between His Majesty's Government and the Egyptian Government were correctly summarised in the Press a few days after the signature of the Report. The Report is so technical that I do not think its publication would serve any useful purpose.
