HC Deb 08 April 1935 vol 300 c810W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what arrangements have been made to ensure that full facilities of entry into Palestine should be given to the several thousand participants in and spectators of the second Maccabiah now being held at Tel-Aviv; and whether he can make a statement as to how these arrangements have worked and whether any difficulties have arisen?


I have no information as to any special facilities for entry into Palestine in connection with the second Maccabiah which may have obeen granted by the High Commissioner for Palestine in the exercise of his discretion under the Palestine law, nor have I heard of any difficulties arising in this connection.
