Spokesperson says Foreign Office will study President Mubarak's proposals to the Egyptian people.

In response to Egypt’s President Mubarak’s TV address, an FCO spokesperson said:

“We have been clear in public, and with President Mubarak and his Government in private, about the need for a transition to a broader-based Government that will produce real, visible and comprehensive change.

President Mubarak has made some proposals to the Egyptian people. We will study the detail of these. But ultimately the real test will be whether the aspirations of the Egyptian people are met.”
