§ 29. Sir John Mellor
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress was made in recent conversations toward ending the emergency jurisdiction of the military tribunals set up by the Egyptian Government and toward restoring the exclusive jurisdiction of the mixed courts to try British subjects in Egypt for all offences punishable by law in accordance with the Treaty of Montreux.
The military tribunals set up by the Egyptian Government under martial law have been abolished. Civilians of British nationality will, in future, only be subject in penal matters to the jurisdiction of the Mixed Courts.
