The Palestine Government is taking steps for the speedy completion of the Cadastral Survey of Palestine which was begun in February, 1921, having as its main object the provision of large-scale maps showing property boundaries with sufficient accuracy to enable them to be used with a title to property.

Sir Ernst MacLeod Dowson, adviser to the Egyptian Ministry of Finance, and Director-General Survey of Egypt, has been invited by the Palestine Government, says an official statement, which has just been issued here, to advise the Government with regard to the completion of the survey.
