MacDonald Sees Possibility of Federal State

Possibility of the establishment of an autonomous Jewish province was broached today by Colonial Secretary Macdonald in his statement in defense of the White Paper. The Palestine state envisioned by the Government plan, Mr. MacDonald said, “may be a unitary state, it may be a federal state and it may be that it should be a state in which there is a predominantly Arab province and a predominantly Jewish province, each enjoying a considerable amount of autonomy but both bound to the Federal Government for dealing with matters of common concern.”
