Douglas Alexander MP, Labour's Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting on reports about Mubarak's assets said:

"The government should immediately request the Serious Fraud Office investigate what assets Mubarak holds in Britain.

"Britain must be ready to act swiftly in response to any request received from the Egyptian or International authorities to freeze wrongly appropriated assets.

"At least 20% of the Egyptian population live below its poverty line of $2 a day: We should play our part in ensuring that any money which rightly belongs to the Egyptian people is returned to them."
