HC Deb 21 January 1947 vol 432 c30
50. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Prime Minister if he will now state the policy of His Majesty's Government with regard to Palestine.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Creech Jones)

I have been asked to reply. The Palestine Conference is resuming shortly, and I am not yet in a position to make any statement

Sir W. Smithers

Is the House really to understand, as this Question was addressed to the Prime Minister, that the Prime Minister and the Government are so weak that they have no policy, when British officers and men are being flogged, and the name of Britain is being dragged in the mud? Answer—have they no policy at all?
