HC Deb 26 July 1944 vol 402 cc756-7
41. Mr. Muff

asked the Secretary of State for War if a decision has been made to recruit Jewish inhabitants of Palestine into units which are definitely Jewish, with flashes and markings to identify them as such.

Mr. A. Henderson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given yesterday to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for West Leeds (Major Adams) by my right hon. Friend.

Commander Locker-Lampson

Has not the time arrived when the Jews, who have been so loyal to the conception of liberty, should have their own Army?

Mr. Henderson

Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will refresh his memory by looking at the answer which my right hon. Friend gave yesterday.
