The Government has no reason to suspect that arms are being smuggled into Palestine for the use of Jews, an Agudath Israel delegation was assured today by Sir John Hathorn-Hall, acting high commissioner.

He disclosed also that the Government has prohibited the entrance of certain Arab publication published abroad.
