HC Deb 12 February 1959 vol 599 c240W
100. Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what protests and objections he has received at Her Majesty's Government reaching an agreement with the Egyptian Government whereby the British Government and British interests lose control of the Suez Base, military installations, stores and equipment, the Suez Canal and other financial assets.
