(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The demand that the League of Nations send a commission of inquiry to Palestine was made in a memorandum of the Palestine Arab Executive submitted to the High Commissioner, Lord Plumer, for transmission to the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations.

The Commission would not only help the League to arrive at a final decision on the Palestine question, but would also assist the Palestine administration which is now drifting into stagnation and corruption, the memorandum states.

The memorandum also demands the creation of a national democratic government in Palestine in accordance with Article 22 of the League covenant and Article 3 of the Palestine Mandate.

Next Friday what is termed the All-Palestine Congress is to be opened. It was stated that the purpose of the Congress was to reestablish the union of Arab parties.
