HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2131
87. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for War the number of Jews and Arabs, respectively, included in the Palestinian unit which recently joined the British Expeditionary Force in France?

Sir V. Warrender

The numbers are—Jews, 430; Arabs, 230.

Mr. Mander

May we take it that this sets out the relative standard of loyalty of the two?
