Says Considering Extending Preference to Palestine

A delegation representing Jewish colonists met with the Palestine High Commissioner yesterday with reference to the draft of the new municipal ordinance regarding tree uprooting and the British duty on orange imports.

The colonists urged that the duty on oranges be imposed only for the period of May 15th to October 30th.

A delegation representing Arab orange growers, who were also received by Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, were informed that the Colonial Office is now considering the possibility of extending Imperial Preference tariffs to Palestine.
