The establishment of a new government in Palestine composed jointly of Jews and Arabs, under a head of state to be appointed by the United Nations, was urged by Sir Hubert Young at a meeting of the Liberal Luncheon Club in London today.
Sir Hubert, who was associated with “Lawrence of Arabia,” urged the division of Palestine into separate Arab and Jewish regions, and suggested that the head of the state should work with a council composed of Jews and Arabs, each with an equal voice, to run the affairs of the government.
