§ 14. Captain P. MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he intends to make a statement respecting the progress of Anglo-Egyptian negotiations before the House adjourns for the Easter recess?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
I am not yet able to say definitely when I shall be in a position to make a statement on these important negotiations. I am glad, however, to have this opportunity of saying that good progress has already been made in the discussion of the proposals.
§ Captain MACDONALD
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the concern felt in Anglo-Egyptian commercial circles at the absence from this Conference of anybody with a special knowledge of the police force in Egypt?
§ 17. Mr. SMITHERS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if there has been any change in the personnel of the Egyptian delegation since their arrival in this country?
§ Mr. SMITHERS
May I ask whether any member of this delegation was implicated in the murder of Sir Lee Stack?
That question does not arise from the answer. I gave the names of the delegation to the House, and the only question I have to answer to-day is as to whether any change has taken place in the personnel and that is the only answer I am going, to give.
On a point of Order. Is there any way of preventing hon. Members from making personal attacks on members of a friendly delegation that comes to the country? Is that in accordance with Rules and usages of the House?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
I do ray best to prevent supplementary questions becoming out of order, and, if the House will help me, I shall be able to succeed better.
