HC Deb 03 November 1936 vol 317 c4W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will see that steps are taken to disarm the Arabs in Palestine without disarming the Jews, who require arms for self-defence and cannot be effectively defended in any other way?


The question of disarming persons, whether Arabs or Jews, in illegal possession of arms in Palestine, is under consideration and I am at present unable to make any statement on the subject.
