HC Deb 09 March 1938 vol 332 c1876
29. Sir A. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Arabs are at present detained in Palestine in concentration camps, and how many have been deported?

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)

The number of Arabs under detention in Palestine on 28th February was 658. I assume that in the last part of the question my hon. and gallant Friend is referring to the Arabs who have been deported to the Seychelles: their number is five.

Sir A. Knox

Have any of these people been tried in any form of court?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

No, Sir.
