Choice of Lord Lloyd As Colonial Secretary Wins Praise in London

The Zionist Review, organ of the British Zionist Federation, today editorially hailed the reconstruction of the Government, including the naming of Lord Lloyd as Colonial Secretary, as opening the possibility of a Palestine solution which would “achieve the most cherished ideals of the Jewish and Arab people.”

Mrs. Emma Dugdale, niece of the late Lord Balfour, writing in the same issue, said: “It was statesmanlike to appoint a Colonial Secretary whom the Arabs will recognize to be their friend and whom the Jews have no reason to regard as their enemy.”

The paper also expressed the hope that the Government would accept the Jewish Agency’s offer to raise a Jewish force for service with the Allies and to organize industrial assistance in the form of bases for war supply in the Near and Middle East.
