Sufficient Forces in Palestine to Guard Peace

England has sufficient forces in Palestine in order to maintain peace there, declared Lord Passfield, Secretary for the Dominion. This statement was made in a letter addressed by the Secretary to reserve forces and ex-soldiers in Roumania, who offered their services to protect the Palestine population. The offer of the group is appreciated, Lord Passfield declared, but England has enough forces in the country to maintain order.
