British Refused Wise, Lipsky Visas Because “we Did Not Want Them in Palestine” Now

The British Government refused Palestine visas to Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Louis Lipsky because “we just did not want them in Palestine at this time,” a Foreign Office spokesman said today.

At the same time the Foreign Office was rejecting the Zionist leaders’ visas the Colonial Office was refusing a demand by several Members of Parliament that they be permitted to visit Palestine to investigate the situation there, it was revealed by Samuel Silverman, Labor, who had made the request.
