HC Deb 10 December 1931 vol 260 cc2055-6
101. Mr. JANNER

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any declaration will be made in respect of the development scheme for Palestine before the House rises; and, if not, whether the Government will be committed to any scheme before the House meets again?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, as was stated in this House on 20th July by the late Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, before approval is given for the guarantee of the loan which would be floated in connection with the development scheme the whole matter would be brought before Parliament for consideration.
