League Commission Meets in March on Palestine Riots

Download PDF for this date

The concern in League of Nation circles over the Palestine disorders of last August is reflected in the summoning of an extraordinary session of the League’s mandates commission in March to receive the British Government’s report on the troubles.

The commission would regularly meet in June, but it wishes to hear as soon as possible the findings of the inquiry by Great Britain, mandatory power responsible for Palestine. The Commissioner’s report will then be ready for the League Council’s meeting in May.

The Council in September urged that all information on the Arab-Jewish clashes should be forwarded to the mandate’s commission, so that the commission might study the question thoroughly.
