§ Mr. HOLT
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the collection of light dues in respect of the Turkish lights in the Red Sea takes place in Egypt; and, if so, whether he will consider the possibility of inducing the Egyptian Government to refrain from collecting these dues until the lights are relit?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Edward Grey)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. Light dues are collected in Egypt for Egyptian lights only.
§ Sir E. GREY
I have been looking into the question, and if the hon. Member puts a question down I think I can make a fuller statement on that point.
