asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Egyptian Cabinet have yet decided on an election; if so, will the people have the right and power to nominate the recent deportees; and, in the event of their election to the assembly, will they be brought back from exile and allowed to take their seats?

I am not aware that the Egyptian Government have come to any decision regarding an election. The remainder of the question does not therefore arise.
