HC Deb 06 November 1961 vol 648 c23W
Mr. Wall

asked the Lord Privy Seal how many British subjects have had their properties sequestrated by the recent presidential decrees in Egypt; and what action he is taking to protect the rights of British subjects there.

Mr. Heath

Eighteen British subjects are known to be amongst those who have had their property sequestrated under the recent decrees in the United Arab Republic.

Her Majesty's Ambassador in Cairo has asked the Government of the United Arab Republic to be informed of the legal basis for these measures.
