Palestine Government Broadcaster Says Government is Determined to Quit Country

Rex Keating, assistant director of the government-operated Palestine Broadcasting Service, told his weekly Sunday night audience yesterday that the British are determined to leave Palestine and that Colonial Secretary Arthur Creech-Jones’ statement at Lake Success meant exactly what it said. However, Keating did not state a date by which the British would be out.

The Palestine situation will get attention from the Arab League this week. The League’s Council begins meeting in Syria tomorrow to discuss this and other problems.
