(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The influence of Germany will from now on be added to that of the European powers who have the right of review of the administration of Palestine under the terms of the mandate, according to a decision of the League Council.

The Council decided to raise the number of members of the Permanent Mandates Commission from nine to ten. The new seat is to go to Germany who will have a say in the administration of mandated territories, including her former colonies.
