Saving of £300,000 Effected in Palestine Administration Expenditure Acting on Recommendations of O’

A saving of about £300,000 will be effected in the expenditure of the Palestine Government by adopting the economy recommendations made in the report of the O’Donnell Commission, which the Government, it is stated to-day, has decided to enforce. The economies affect the administrative machinery of the Palestine Government.

At the last meeting of the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations held in June, Mr. Young, the Chief Secretary to the Palestine Government and now Acting High Commissioner, pending the arrival of the new High Commissioner, General Wauchope, replied in the negative when he was asked by Lord Lugard whether Sir Samuel O’Donnell’s Committee appointed for the purpose of scrutinising the expenditure of the Palestine Administration and finding means to reduce it, had yet reported.
