§ 61. Lieut.-Colonel JAMES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any arrests or convictions have yet occurred in connection with the recent murders of British subjects in Egypt?
The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
An inquiry into the matter is still proceeding, and several persons have been detained on suspicion of complicity, but no one has yet been charged.
§ Mr. G. MURRAY
Can the hon. Gentleman say who is conducting that inquiry and whether it is being conducted solely by the Egyptian Government or in consort with representatives of His Majesty's Government?
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Has the hon. Gentleman seen the statement in the Press that 13 British citizens have recently been murdered in Egypt and that no one has been brought to justice?
