HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 c203W
Sir D. Savory

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is now in a position to state what compensation will be payable for the destruction of British property in Cairo and the murder of nine British subjects.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

No. As indicated in the answer given on 3rd March to my hon. Friend the Member for Sutton Cold-field (Sir J. Mellor) the question is still under consideration by the Egyptian Government. Though a detailed assessment of the damage is of necessity rather a long process, evidence in support of British claims is being collected by Her Majesty's Embassy in Cairo with all possible speed.
