HC Deb 16 December 1936 vol 318 c2436
21. Colonel WEDGWOOD

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information as to the destruction of the Migdal quarry and plant near Petach Tikuah by a large Arab band wearing uniforms or as to the other outrages on 13th December?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)

I have seen a, report of the incidents referred to, but have not yet received any official confirmation. I will ask the High Commissioner for Palestine for a, report.


Seeing that this incident is not isolated, does not the right hon. Gentleman automatically get reports of this recrudescence of violence?


It is rather curious. I usually receive reports of what is going on, but I have no reference to this particular question.
