The only public session thus far arranged by the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry, which is expected to arrive here tomorrow morning, will be held tomorrow afternoon. The session will take place at four o’clock at the Jerusalem District Court, after which the Commission will adjourn until October 28. Its succeeding sessions, which will be private, will be held in the building formerly occupied by the Customs Department. Announcement of the arrangements for the session was made today by the government.

Ten representatives of the press were invited to the opening session. A journalists’ deputation composed of Gershon Agronsky, representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Jacob Fishman, managing editor of the “Jewish Morning Journal” of New York, and Mr. Memory, the correspondent of the London, “Daily Mail,” will call on Civil Secretary H. C. Luke this afternoon, requesting press facilities for the duration of the trial.
