HC Deb 03 November 1936 vol 317 c6W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of Arab action to stop the development of a port at Tel Aviv; and will he prevent the Palestine administration from taking any further steps to assist these Arab interests against legitimate competition, namely, by restricting the use of Tel Aviv harbour in any way whatever?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. I am not aware of any grounds for the suggestion made in the second part.
