Partition Commission Opens London Hearings Today

Back from a 14-week investigation in Palestine, the Partition Commission is expected to hold its first London meeting in private on Monday. No witnesses are to be called.

The Times said in an editorial yesterday that the radio broadcasts by Colonial Secretary Malcolm MacDonald and High Commissioner Sir Harold MacMichael had “left no doubt that fundamental British policy has not and will not be deflected by terrorism.”

The Sunday Observer reports that the Commission’s report is expected to be ready early in October.
