New York (Jan. 26)
The British Government is about to issue a new Palestine statement which will be much more favourable to the Jewish side, the “New York Times” reports from London to-day. The publication of the new Statement is imminent, the paper says.
On enquiry at the Prime Minister’s Office at 10, Downing Street, the J.T.A. is informed that the conversations with the Jewish Agency have been and are still going on, in accordance with the communique issued from this Office on November 15th. The Government expects to issue a Statement at the proper time, it was added, but it is too early to say when such a statement will be issued. There is no question, however, of any new report being about to be published.
The Colonial Office on enquiry, also tells the J.T.A. that no new report on Palestine is now imminent.
