HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 cc899-900
27. Mr. BECKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if his attention has been called to the decision arrived at by the Palestine Arab Congress when it was resolved to reject any loan for Palestine; and can he state how the money advanced by Crown agents to Palestine will be repaid, seeing that no loan will be floated?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Baronet the Member for Orkney on the 25th June regarding the status of the Arab Congress referred to. The reso- lutions of the Congress are not binding upon the Palestine administration. I do not accept the assumption made by the hon. Member in the closing words of his question.
