Lord Moyne Urged to Revise Palestine Policy

Commenting on Lord Moyne’s appointment as Colonial Secretary, the Manchester Guardian today urged him to look critically at the Palestine policy and not to be afraid of differing with his predecessor and with the Palestine administration.

In particular, the paper said, Lord Moyne should discover who authorized the official statement that the refugees who reached Palestine on the S.S. Atlantic would not be allowed into the country, even after the war, and whether the Government ever sanctioned “that remarkable usurpation of the powers of Parliament and the people.”
