§ Lieut.-Colonel JAMES
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is in a position to say when the Commission to decide the ownership, etc., of the holy places in Jerusalem is to be appointed and to commence its deliberations; and whether, in the event of the Abyssinian representatives being able to establish the legal title of their claim, they will receive the sympathetic consideration of His Majesty's Government?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
No, Sir. I am not in a position to state when a Commission will be set up. The whole question is in abeyance.
