§ 55. Mr. PONSONBY
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the advice of the British High Commissioner was asked for in the Parliamentary crisis in Egypt; if so, what form that advice has taken; and whether he can give the House any information as to the present political situation in Egypt?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
No, Sir. The High Commissioner was not concerned in the circumstance which produced the crisis, and offered no advice as to its solution. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to a reply returned to a similar question asked by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on 28th April.
