HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 cc1975-6W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can give any further information in regard to the Dead Sea concession; and whether any contract has yet been endorsed by the Palestinian Government?


As I informed the hon. and gallant Member for Chelmsford (Colonel Howard-Bury) on 28th January, I have been awaiting a reply from the Trans-Jordan Government on certain points of detail in connection with the draft concession. That reply has now reached me and is under my consideration. No contract has yet been executed.
