6. Colonel Cazalet
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House any information in regard to the decision arrived at by the Bermuda Conference?
§ Mr. Eden
As my hon. Friends will no doubt have noticed from the statement 149 issued at the conclusion of the Bermuda meeting, a number of concrete recommendations have been made, but as these involve certain military considerations, they must for the present remain confidential. I hope, however, a further statement may be possible before long.
§ Mr. Hammersley
Have arrangements been concluded for dealing with the 29,000 available permits for entry into Palestine?
Seeing that this Report has been held back so long, cannot the right hon. Gentleman give some assurance that the gates of this country will be opened at least to some moderate extent so as to allow some refugees to get in? We were given to understand long ago that this country, after consultation with others, would make some contribution.
