§ 34. Mr. Piratin
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Jewish personnel in the British Army are being posted out of Palestine; on whose orders this is being done; and what steps he will take to end this religious discrimination.
§ Mr. Lawson
I am aware of this instruction. It was issued by the War Office in the interests of the soldiers concerned, 198 and it applies equally to men of the Jewish and Moslem faiths.
