HC Deb 16 May 1944 vol 400 cc41-2W
Mr. Hannah

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the possibility of enlarging the Jewish battalions in the Palestine regiment into a Jewish regiment and opening it for recruitment for Palestinian refugee and stateless Jews as well as volunteers from neutral and liberated countries and also to the Jewish soldiers in the Polish forces who desire such transfer.

Sir J. Grigg

In answer to the last part of my hon. Friend's Question I do not see that I can very well add anything to the statements made by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in reply to the hon. Member for Maldon (Mr. Driberg) on 5th April and 26th April. On the other matters raised by my hon. Friend I have nothing at present to add to previous statements.
