§ Mr. FELL
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he had received any reports from Egypt of a disquieting nature, that the influence of this country was rapidly weakening, and that English residents in many places could not go out without running the risk of being insulted; and if any papers relating to the question could be laid before Parliament.
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
Recent reports respecting the situation in Egypt with special reference to the assassination of Boutros Pasha, are not as satisfactory as could be desired, but I have not heard of any cases of insult to English residents. There are no papers which can be laid.
