No Reason to Suppose Existing Arrangement for Giving Effect to Labour Legislation in Palestine Inade

Mr. David Adams also asked if the Secretary of State for the Colonies would consider the appointment of a special inspectorate to ensure that labour decrees were properly carried out in Palestine, and to publish an annual report on these matters.

I have no reason to suppose, Sir Robert replied, that the existing arrangement for giving effect to the provisions of labour legislation are inadequate. If Mr. Adams will furnish me with any evidence to the contrary I will ask the High Commissioner whether the matter has been considered by the local committee which is at present examining the operation of labour legislation in Palestine.
