§ Mr. David Adams
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can give the number of Palestinians, men and women, who have so far joined the Services as volunteers; what proportion of these are Jews; and whether, as family allowances are only two-thirds of the British amounts and the dependants' allowances are nonexistent, he will consider recommending an increase in the former and the establishment of the latter?
§ Mr. A. Henderson
I regret that it is not in the public interest to give the figures asked for my hon. Friend. Over three-quarters of the Palestinian volunteers in the Armed Forces are Jews. The question of the allowances raised in the last part of the Question is now under consideration.
