HC Deb 30 April 1930 vol 238 c180
14. Sir F. HALL

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the question of the abolition of the mixed courts is one of the matters discussed with the Egyptian delegation; whether, prior to the commencement of the present negotiations, it was agreed that this subject should be open to discussion; and if he will arrange for the Reports which were obtained by the late Lord High Commissioner as to the methods and procedure of the Egyptian native, civil and criminal courts to be circulated to the House as a White Paper?


The reply to the first two parts of the question is in the negative. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Aylesbury (Mr. Beaumont) on the 9th April.
