HC Deb 24 November 1936 vol 318 c242W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the High Commissioner for Palestine purposes visiting England shortly; and, is so, will General Dill take charge of Palestine in his absence?


I am unable to say how soon it is likely that the High Commissioner for Palestine will be visiting this country. During the High Commissioner's absence, the government of Palestine is normally administered by the Chief Secretary, and I do not anticipate any departure from this procedure.
