§ 49. Sir P. MAGNUS
asked the Prime Minister if he can now state when the full terms of the mandate for Palestine will be published?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Cecil Harmsworth)
It is hoped shortly to complete the draft mandate for submission to the Council of the League of Nations, but I am not yet in a position to state the exact date. Meanwhile the question of publication cannot arise.
Sir J. D. REES
Will the League of Nations have anything to say to these terms; can they disregard them after they are decided by the Government?
§ Mr. MacVEAGH
Can the hon. Gentleman at the same time say whether this mandate will make Palestine a place fit for Jews to live in?
