HC Deb 25 May 1922 vol 154 c1438W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to abolish shortly martial law in Egypt; whether they are delaying the abolition until the Egyptian Ministry have framed the new laws and exceptional measures similar to and continuing those under martial law; and, if so, whether this was arrived at by agreement between Sarwat Pasha and Lord Allenby?


The intentions of His Majesty's Government, with regard to martial law, remain as defined in their declaration to Egypt. The reply to the second part of the question is in the negative, the last part does not, therefore, arise.
