§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what is the cause of delay in erecting lighthouses in the Red Sea, particularly at Mocha, and also Abu Ail, on the island of Jebel Tier?
Funds have already been provided by the Egyptian Government for the construction of these lights, but, as the proposed sites are within. Turkish territory, it will be necessary to make arrangements on the subject with 1262 the Porte. Her Majesty's Ambassador at Constantinople is in communication with his colleagues as to the nature of the representations which should be addressed to the Porte on behalf of the maritime States who are interested in the subject.
