HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc109-10W
32. Mr. Molson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will make a statement regarding his negotiations with the Egyptian government for an acceptance by them of responsibility for the murder of British soldiers in Alexandria on 4th March, 1946.

Mr. McNeil

As the House is aware, a Note was addressed on 7th October to the Egyptian Prime Minister of that time. To this no reply has been received. A further communication has therefore been sent to the present Egyptian Prime Minister asking His Excellency to inform His Majesty's Ambassador as soon as possible whether he is in a position to agree to His Majesty's Government's proposals.
