§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Secretary of of State for Foreign Affairs how many seats are vacant on the Board of the Suez Canal Company; and whether the matter has been reviewed in recent and current Anglo-French financial discussions.
§ Mr. George Hall
There are at present three vacancies amongst the British nonofficial Directors and, so far as I am aware, nine amongst the French Directors. This question was not raised in the Anglo-French financial discussions, to which indeed it does not seem to be relevant.
