§ 29. Captain P. MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has any information as to the recent disturbances in Egypt; and whether any special precautions have been taken for the protection of British interests?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
During an attempt to hold a political demonstration at Beni Suef on the 3rd of May, a clash occurred between demonstrators and the police. Fifteen police were in- 803 jured, and six of the demonstrators were killed and three wounded. No special precautions have hitherto been necessary for the protection of British interests.
§ Mr. GODFREY LOCKER-LAMPSON
May the House take it for granted that the European Bureau of Public Security is functioning as usual?
As far as I am aware it is, but, if the right hon. Gentleman will put down a question, I will get full information.
