Plan New Changes in Personnel of Palestine Administration

Download PDF for this date

Further changes will be made in the personnel of the civil and Judicial administration of the Palestine government, according to a statement today in the House of Commons by Dr. Drummond Shiels, undersecretary of state for the Colonies. He added that these changes are necessary as a result of the recent investigation of the Palestine government by the O’Donnell financial commission.

In the last year a number of important changes in the Palestine government have already been made. General Arthur Grenfell Wauchope has been appointed High Commissioner to succeed Sir John Chancellor whose resignation is effective November 1. Mark Aitchinson Young has replaced Harry Charles Luke as chief secretary of the Palestine government. R. B. G. Spicer, former police chief of Kenya Colony, has succeeded A. S. Mavrogordato as commander of the Palestine police office.

It has also been reported that Edward Keith Roach, district commissioner of Jerusalem, will be sent to a post outside of Palestine or be given a new position in Palestine, and be succeeded by J. E. F. Campbell, district commissioner of Jaffa.
