§ 28. Mr. GRAHAM WHITE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in view of the widespread disappointment and inconvenience caused by the cancellation of 2,300 certificates granted to Jewish immigrants, he will invite Sir John Hope Simpson to make this question the subject of his first inquiry and report?
§ Mr. LUNN
The High Commissioner has been asked to confer with Sir John Hope Simpson on the possibility of the matter being treated in this way. As has already been explained to the hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Sir R. Hamilton) and the hon. Member for Dundee (Mr. Marcus) on 21st May, it is not correct to speak of the cancellation of certificates.
§ Mr. HANNON
Is the hon. Member aware of the very violent disturbance in the minds of the Jewish community at the cancellation of these immigration arrangements, and will he endeavour to make some statement at the earliest possible moment to satisfy them?
§ Mr. McSHANE
Is the hon. Member aware of the disturbing effects of the immigration of these Jewish people on the minds of the Arabs?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is my hon. Friend aware that this cancellation is looked upon as a condonation of murder by Arabs?
