New Government Statement is Reaffirmation of Balfour Declaration Against Which We Must Fight Anew Sa

The new Government letter on Palestine Policy is a reaffirmation of the Balfour Declaration, against which we must fight anew, is the general tone adopted by the Palestine Arab press.

The Palestine Arab Executive has applied for an interview for to-morrow (Monday) with the High Commissioner, Sir John Chancellor, probably to submit to him a formal protest against the new Government letter on Palestine policy.

The Arab leaders propose to put a request to the Government, it is understood, that in return for the Government recognition of the right of Jewish organisations to employ Jewish labour exclusively, it should sanction the right of Arabs to buy Arab goods exclusively, thus legalising the anti-Jewish boycott.
