§ 54. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether Jews are admitted into the fighting armies of the Services in Palestine and Transjordania: gendarmerie, frontier force, Air Force and armoured cars?
§ Mr. AMERY
Thirty-seven Jews were serving with the Trans-Jordan Frontier Force at the end of 1926. Palestinian Jews are not recruited for the Air Force or the armoured cars; but they are employed as civilians in subordinate capacities in connection with those units. The gendarmerie has been disbanded.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
May I ask how long this insulting exclusion of Jews from the armed forces in the country which is supposed to be their homeland is to continue?
