HC Deb 13 July 1936 vol 314 c1665

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, with the restoration of order in Palestine, it is his intention to advise the appointment from this country of experts in municipal administration in view of the backward state of local government in Palestine?

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

The question of the appointment of a municipal adviser will be further considered when normal conditions are restored. With reference to the suggestion in the second part of the hon. Member's question, I am glad to be able to say that almost all the municipalities in Palestine have worked well and satisfactorily during the last two and a-half years.
