Sees Liberals Less Divided over Question of Palestine

The Liberals are seen as less divided over the Palestine question than the Laborites and the Conservatives because of the outspoken attitude of Sir Herbert Samuel, a leader of the party and former High Commissioner of Palestine, according to the Morning Post.

Speculating on the outcome of Monday’s parliamentary debate, the Post sees little difference of opinion among the opposition that the White Paper departs from the spirit and letter of the Mandate. The Laborites, the Post says, are more concerned, however, for the moment, with the effect that the new Palestine policy will have on the Whitechapel by-election where the Jewish vote is very strong. To this the paper attributes the allocation of so early a day for the debate despite the congested calendar of the House of Commons.
