Download PDF for this date

Replying to the demand for a parliament, submitted by a delegation of the anti-Zionist Arab Executive, Sir John Chancellor stated that he recognizes the rights of the Arabs, but the question of a parliament arouses many difficulties.

These difficulties are caused by the religious and racial diversity in Palestine. However, the High Commissioner stated, these difficulties are not insurmountable. He will study the question and give an answer shortly. The interview lasted an hour.
