(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The question of Palestine birth and British nationality which was raised in the House of Commons on Tuesday was discussed again today.

Replying to questions put to him, Sir Joynson Hicks, Home Secretary, stated that while persons born in any of the British dominions have no need to claim British nationality, birth in Palestine does not entitle one to British nationality on attaining majority.
