§ 33. Mr. Keeling
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, what quantities of arms were found by the Government of Palestine before they discontinued, early this month, the military searches for weapons and ammunition in the possession of the illegal military organisations condemned by the Anglo-American Commission.
§ Mr. George Hall
I have not yet received a complete list of the arms discovered and owing to the blowing up of the King David Hotel it may be some time 937 before full details are available to me. I would, however, invite the hon. Member's attention to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Preston (Dr. Segal) on 10th July in regard to the arms discovered at Yagur.
§ Mr. Keeling
As it is painfully obvious that those searches were not exhaustive, can the Government give us an assurance that they were not discontinued because of pressure, either from the Zionists or from any other quarter?
