HC Deb 19 April 1937 vol 322 cc1422-3
42. Mr. David Adams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has a statement as to the present position of affairs in Palestine?

Sir Henry Morris-Jones (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which was given to the right hon. and gallant Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Colonel Wedgwood) on 14th April.

Mr. Adams

In view of the fact that we are advised officially that flocks of such slow-moving animals as sheep have been moved successfully by marauders without protection, does the Minister consider that the inhabitants are having the adequate protection of the military and the police?

Sir H. Morris-Jones

I will convey that question to my right hon. Friend.
