HC Deb 30 July 1954 vol 531 cc119-20W
Lieut. - Colonel Bromley - Davenport

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the agreement which has been reached with Egypt over the Suez Canal base, he proposes to complete at an early date the outstanding questions relating to the amount of compensation due to British nationals following the incidents which took place in Egypt in 1951.

Mr. Nutting

The Egyptian Government have repeatedly been asked to consider the claims of British officials dismissed from the Egyptian service in 1951. Although this question is not directly connected with the present negotiations, I am hopeful that in the improved atmosphere of Anglo-Egyptian relations there will soon be progress on this outstanding issue.
