When Colonel Wedgwood asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in the House of Commons to-day whether he had any information to give the House as to the assassination of Jewish settlers in the Valley of Esdraelon and the measures taken to put an end to these affairs, Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister, the Colonial Secretary, replied:

I have recently seen a report in the press of the murder of a Jewish farmer and the wounding of his wife by unknown persons in a Jewish colony. I see from another report that the police were on the spot within ten minutes of the crime and that the local detachments have been strengthened, and I am satisfied that the Government of Palestine will continue to take all possible action to prevent outrages of this kind and to bring the criminals to justice.
