White Paper Discussion Not on League of National Agenda

The Palestine question does not figure on the agenda of the coming session of the Council of the League of Nations which opens here on January 19, 1931.

The agenda of the council includes however a report of the activities of the Mandates Commission since its last session. Although officially the White Paper cannot be discussed at the coming session, it is possible, neverthehless, that Dr. Voyislav Marinkovitch, Premier of Jugoslavia, who is the rapporteur of the Mandates Commission, will be able to touch upon the White Paper in his report, because of his friendly attitude to Zionism.

Such possible mention of the White Paper will however be only superficial. The full discussion of the White Paper cannot be expected before next September, since the Mandates Commission is not yet ready with its own decision regarding the White Paper, which aroused Jewish protests the world over.
