§ 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.
