A debate on the question of a Jewish military force in Palestine is expected to be held in the House of Commons before the summer recess, it was learned here today. Previously, the issue of a Jewish army has been raised in individual questions by members of parliament addressed to Government Spokesmen. Although a protracted debate is not anticipated, it is expected that all members who wish to express themselves on the question will have an opportunity to speak.
