asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that recently an article condemning the British policy in the Sudan and insisting that the Sudan and Egypt are indivisible was sent to the newspaper "Alhadara"; that the editor of the newspaper, instead of publishing it, sent the article to the authorities, who forbade publication; and that the authorities accused Lieutenant Aly Effendi Abdul Latif, of the 10th Sudanese Regiment, of being a party to this article and put him under arrest in the 14th Sudanese Regiment pending trial by the civil authorities at Khartoum: and, if so, will His Majesty's Government supply this House with the full article?
