HC Deb 04 November 1938 vol 340 c542W
Mr. Gallacher

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will give details of destruction caused by punitive methods used against the Palestinian town of Jenin; how many houses were destroyed; how many prisoners were shot while trying to escape and how many other civilian casualties were reported; and will he take steps to see that an inquiry is instituted into the methods used, the damage done, and into the complaints of ill-treatment of citizens and looting?

Mr. M. MacDonald

I am not in possession of the details for which the hon. Member asks, but I will ask the High Commissioner for a report. Pending receipt of this report I cannot add anything further.
