HC Deb 20 June 1927 vol 207 cc1478-9
35. Colonel DAY

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is in a position to make a statement with regard to the settlement arrived at between Great Britain and Egypt with reference to the retention of foreign officials necessary to guarantee Imperial communications and safeguard foreign interests which, under the declaration of 22nd February, 1922, Great Britain has undertaken to protect?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Godfrey Locker-Lampson)

I must refer the hon. and gallant Member to answers returned to similar questions asked by him on the 2nd May, and the 13th June, respectively. I do not think that I have any further information to add on this subject.

Colonel DAY

Will the rights of foreign officials be protected by that arrangement?


I should like notice of any question of details of that kind.
