§ 32. Captain E. N. BENNETT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies the expenditure involved in the recruiting and transport of additional British police to Palestine?
§ 61. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the cost of the recently recruited gendarmerie for Palestine is to be paid for out of Imperial funds or entirely by the Palestinian Government?
§ 38. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies the number of Jews and Arabs respectively in the Palestine police and the Palestine defence forces at the latest date available prior to the rising?
§ Mr. LUNN
The latest available figures for the Palestine police are: Jews, 211; Arabs (including all non-British Christians), 1,120. For the Trans-Jordan frontier force: Jews, 27; Arabs, 441. The latter force, while available for service in both Palestine and Trans-Jordan, operates mainly in Trans-Jordan, to which the Balfour Declaration does not apply.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Can my hon. Friend say whether the police who failed in their duty on 23rd August have been restored to the force, and, if so, has there been any disciplinary action taken?
§ Captain CAZALET
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether the expenses of the whole of that force are found by Palestine or by Trans-Jordan?
