Ritish, U.S. Delegates in Moscow Deny Marshall and Bevin Conferred on Palestine

A report in a New York newspaper that Foreign secretary Ernest Bevin had met here with Secretary of State George C. Marshall on the Palestine question was denied today by both the American and British delegations.

(In Washington, Acting Secretary of State Dean Acheson also denied the newspaper report, adding that the U.S. had not received from the British Government a proposal under which the British would withdraw the Palestine issue from the U.N. and agree to the partitioning of Palestine, if America would share the political and economic responsibility, as was stated in the dispatch, which originated in Jerusalem.)
