HC Deb 09 October 1945 vol 414 cc21-2
46. Squadron-Leader

Donner asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of our responsibilities towards the Arabs, Jews and Christians in the Holy Land, he will now state the policy of His Majesty's Government as regards the White Paper

The Prime Minister

I have no statement to make at present, but I hope to make one at an early date.

Squadron-Leader Donner

In view of the very great danger of further delay and uncertainty, would the Prime Minister make it at a very early date?

The Prime Minister

I am making it as early as possible.

Earl Winterton

Could I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether, if there is any departure to be announced from the White Paper policy, there will be an opportunity of discussion in this House before that departure is put into operation?

The Prime Minister

A statement will be made in the House and that statement will obviously be debated before action has been taken, therefore that contingency will not arise.
