Mr CASEY - The authority set up by the United Nations to deal with the clearance of the Suez Canal announced a relatively short time ago that the canal would be cleared for ships up to 10,000 tons by the 10th of this month, but we are now told that, owing to deliberate obstruction by the Egyptian Government, the canal will not be cleared for such ships until at least the 26th of this month. The complete clearance of the canal will be similarly deferred until some time in the future.
