HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 cc988-9W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any inquiries have been made by the Foreign Office into the state of health of Zaghloul Pasha and his colleagues at the Seychelles; whether the wisdom of their repatriation has been considered; whether he is aware that a medical report has been submitted to His Majesty King Fuad on the health of Zaghloul Pasha and the unsuitability of the Seychelles climate, and that great popular anxiety is manifested in Egypt at the exposure of this venerable man in exile; and if the Foreign Office will advise Zaghloul's return from exile?
