British newspapers devoted much space today to the international refugee-aid conference opening at Evian-Les-Bains, France, tomorrow. The Times reported that Sir John Shuckburgh, Colonial Office representative on the six-man British delegation, had with him a tentative scheme for settlement of a few hundred refugee families in one of great Britain’s African colonies.

The Manchester Guardian summed up the prospects for the Evian conference as “not very promising.” The laborite daily herald urged the British government to remove Palestine immigration restrictions, declaring that whatever the Evian conference decided, Palestine “remains the kernel of the basic solution to a basic problem.”
