(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The discussion on the report of the Palestine administration submitted by the British Government, was concluded at the session of the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations.

Col. George S. Symes, former Civil Secretary, was asked many questions to which he replied. The petition of the Agudath Israel, Orthodox world organization, which is at variance with the Zionist Organization on the question of the internal organization of Palestine Jewry, was not considered by the Commission as the committee which submitted the memorandum requested a postponement until the next session.
