§ 22. Mr. DONNER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will ascertain how many lawyers are attached to, or are members of, the Egyptian Delegation at present taking part in the preliminary Anglo-Egyptian conversations, and their names?
§ 23. Mr. DONNER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the declared attitude of His Majesty's Government towards Ahmed Bey Maher and Nekrashi Bey, he will draw the attention of the Egyptian Government to the undesirability of these persons taking part in the Anglo-Egyptian conversations?
§ Mr. DONNER
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the presiding Judge, the late 2400 Judge Kershaw, resigned after the verdict, stating that a gross miscarriage of justice had taken place; and that he was endorsed in this attitude by His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom?
§ 25. Mr. CARTLAND
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will give an assurance that when the Anglo-Egyptian preliminary conversations are completed, before formal treaty negotiations are opened a full statement will be made to the House and an opportunity afforded for debate?
§ Mr. CARTLAND
May we take it then that the House will not be committed by these preliminary conversations, but will have an opportunity to express their feelings and opinions on the matter before the negotiations begin?
§ 27. Mr. DONNER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state, approximately, at what date the formal Anglo-Egyptian Treaty negotiations are likely to be opened; and whether he can give an assurance that the legal expert to advise the British delegation will arrive in Cairo before that time?
