Germany Asks for Seat on Permanent Mandates Commission

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Germany’s political influence may again be brought to bear on the development of Palestine if the desire of the German government to have a seat on the Permanent Mandates Commission which reviews the situation in Palestine for the League is fulfilled.

Official steps were taken by the German foreign office with a view to securing a seat for Germany on the Commission. Foreign Minister Stressemann has asked the British government to lend its support to Germany’s claim.
