HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 cc2095-6

asked the Prime Minister whether the House will be given an opportunity of debating the Report of the Palestine Commission before Easter; and whether the Government adhere to the definitions of policy and obligations under the Palestine Mandate set out in the White Paper of 1922?


As the right hon. Member was informed on the 17th March, the Secretary of State is consulting the High Commissioner as to the date of publication. In the circumstances, I am not yet able to say what arrangements can be made to meet the desire for a Debate on the subject. With regard to the second part of the question, it is clear that, at the present moment, any general declaration of policy, beyond what has already been made, would be premature.
