HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 cc1281-2W
Mr. G. Porter

asked the Secretary of state for War whether he is aware that subsequent to the recent massacres in Tripoli, the local Arab leaders refused to guarantee that order would be maintained unless the following demands were met: removal of the Palestinian company attached to the British troops, disbandment of the Jewish Boy Scouts' Association and dismissal of the Jewish" members of the police; and what reply has been given to these demands.

Mr. Lawson

Demands of this nature have not been made, and the local Arab leaders have made no such refusal to guarantee law and order.
