(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Col. Josiah Wedgwood, British Labor M. P. and staunch supporter of the Zionist movement, gave detailed explanations of his idea that Palestine become the Seventh Dominion with the British Empire, advocated in his book, “The Seventh Dominion,” published recently.

Col. Wedgwood attended a meeting of the party committee of the League of Zionist Revisionists held at the home of Richard Lichtheim, one of the group leaders. In his explanation, Col. Wedgwood stated that the Seventh Dominion idea would become applicable after the expiration of the Mandate period, when Palestine should become a full-fledged Jewish dominion within the Empire.

In the discussion which followed, it is reported, it became clear that Wedgwood’s idea is closely related to the demands of the Zionist Revisionists and it was decided to submit the matter for final endorsement at a forthcoming Revisionist Conference to be held in Vienna.
