HC Deb 03 November 1936 vol 317 cc6-8W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has, or can obtain, any information as to the German Government permitting Jews to take 8,000 marks of capital out of Germany on surrendering half; and whether he will reduce the capital required by Jews entering Palestine so that such Jews may be enabled to escape from Germany?


I do not think any useful purpose would be served by obtaining detailed information regarding the somewhat complicated arrangements for the transfer of capital from Germany to palestine, as I am satisfied that any reduction in the qualifying capital required for immigrants could not be economically justified in present circumstances obtaining in palestine.
