HC Deb 13 March 1939 vol 345 c26
38. Lieut-Colonel Sir A. Lambert Ward

asked the Prime Minister whether His Majesty's Government will publish the terms of the message about the Balfour Declaration delivered by Commander Hogarth to King Hussein of the Hejaz in January, 1918, and of the message delivered in June, 1918, to certain prominent Arabs in Cairo about the future of the Arab territories, described as the Declaration to the Seven?

Mr. Butler

Yes, Sir. His Majesty' s Government propose to publish these messages in a white Paper at an early date.

Sir A. Lambert Ward

Can the right hon. Gentleman say when it is likely to be published?

Mr. Butler

I think it will take a day or two to prepare it, but I hope it will be very soon.
