HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 cc1389-90
79. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state how many Jews have been enrolled in the new Palestine Gendarmerie; how many men this new force consists of; and how many Jews were enrolled in the old gendarmerie?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)

I am asking the High Commissioner for the information desired by the right hon. Member.


Would the right hon. Gentleman say whether he contemplates taking any action, or directing any action to be taken, to remove the very unfortunate impression that this change has created in Palestine?


I think the actual facts, when they become clear, will remove any such impression.
