HC Deb 24 November 1937 vol 329 c1207
40 and 41. Captain Strickland

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what volume of citrus export can be dealt with this coming season by the new port of Tel Aviv; and how such capacity compares with the volume shipped from that port in the 1936 season; (2) whether he is satisfied that adequate arrangements have now been effected in Palestine for the transport and export of the citrus crop during the forthcoming season; and what is the storage capacity, respectively, in the three ports of Tel Aviv, Jaffa and Haifa?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

I believe that the arrangements for handling the forthcoming citrus crop in Palestine are fully adequate. I will request the High Commissioner to send me the detailed figures of storage capacity asked for.

Captain Strickland

Will the right hon. Gentleman publish these details?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore
