HC Deb 22 February 1922 vol 150 c1906
77. Mr. RAPER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what amount has actually been paid in cash by the Zionist organisation for the Greek Orthodox Church land and buildings recently bought by them in Palestine; and did the Government consider other expedients could have been found to liquidate the debts of the Greek Orthodox Church of Palestine?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to him on the 14th February. He will have learnt that it was not the Zionist Organisation which purchased the lands and buildings referred to.


Is it not a fact that certain Greek banks brought a proposal forward to pay off all outstanding debts?


I think I should have notice of that question.
