§ 56. Brigadier-General NATION
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Jews of British nationality and how many of foreign have entered Palestine during the last 10 years?
Mr. M. MacDONALD
During the ten years ended on 31st December, 1934, out of 148,280 Jews entering Palestine as immigrants, 2,318 came from the British Empire and 145,982 from foreign countries. It may be assumed that most of the former were British subjects or British protected persons.
§ Brigadier-General NATION
With regard to the latter figure, can the right hon. Gentleman say approximately what are the numbers from Italy and Germany?
I am afraid I have not those figures available. If I can discover them, I will let my hon. and gallant Friend know.
