HC Deb 22 April 1937 vol 322 c1935W
Mr. Messer

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many Jews have been killed and how many wounded as a result of Arab attacks each month during the latest six months for which figures are available; and what steps are being taken to prevent further outbreaks of violence?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

The figures are as follows: From 12th October to 12th February, one killed. From 13th February to 18th March, eight killed and 25 wounded; of these casualties 18 were due to a single bomb explosion. From 19th March to 20th April, one killed. As regards the latter part of the question, I have nothing to add to recent replies.
