§ MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will appoint an independent Commission to inquire into and report on the suggested cession of territory to an alien race in East Africa.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Earl PERCY, Kensington, S.)
There would, in the opinion of the Secretary of State, be no: advantage in appointing a Commission; no cession of territory is contemplated. The conditions of the lease to the Jewish Colonial Trust are under discussion.
§ MR. CATHCART WASON
I shall call attention to this matter on the Motion to adjourn for the holidays.
