HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 c191W
Mr. Stokes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the President of Israel and Mr. Aubrey Eban, representative of the Government of Israel on the United Nations, are still permitted the use of their British passports.

Mr. Mayhew

On the assumption that the President of Israel and Mr. Aubrey Eban were Palestinian citizens, and hold unexpired Palestine passports they will, as such, share in the general arrangements made by His Majesty's Government on the termination of the Mandate whereby unexpired Palestine passports, issued under the authority of His Majesty's High Commissioner for Palestine, will continue to be recognised as valid travel and identity documents. Holders of Palestine passports require British visas before they can enter British territory.
