HC Deb 03 March 1948 vol 448 c381
37. Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the High Commissioner and Government of Palestine have agreed to assist in the formation of an International Police Force to undertake the guardianship of Jerusalem and the reserved area of the Holy Places when sanctioned by the United Nations Organisation.

Mr. Rees-Williams

The United Nations Commission has been informed that no obstacle will be placed in the way of any members of the British section of the Palestine Police Force volunteering, on termination of their present engagements, for service with such a force.

Sir R. Glyn

Can the Parliamentary Secretary say whether there has been any proposal by the United Nations for the formation of this force?

Mr. Rees-Williams

I should want notice of that question.
