HC Deb 25 May 1938 vol 336 c1188
21. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister the present position with regard to the ex-Mufti; whether steps are being taken to obtain his removal from Beyrout in view of his breach of his promise to refrain from political activity and the conspiracy against Palestine being conducted from there; and what steps the Lebanese and Syrian Governments are taking to check the entry of unauthorised persons from their territories into Palestine?

Mr. Butler

In answer to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies on 16th March, to which I have nothing to add. With regard to the second and third parts, I am not in a position to make any statement.

Mr. Mander

Can the hon. Gentleman at any rate give the assurance that there is whole-hearted co-operation between the British and French Governments on this matter?

Mr. Butler

Yes, Sir.
