Leopold H. Amery, British Colonial Secretary; Sir John Chancellor, new Palestine High Commissioner; Marquis of Reading, Sir Wyndham Deedes.

At a press conference arranged Friday by the Zionist Executive further information with regard to the negotiations for the extension of the Jewish Agency was given. It was declared that since the London meeting of the members of the Palestine Joint Survey Commission, no further negotiations took place, it beng preferred that negotiations be conducted orally.

It is expected that Dr. Weizmann will return to London by the end of November, where he will devote himself to political activities and proceed to Palestine in March.
