British Government’s Attitude at U.N. Discussions on Palestine Scored

Download PDF for this date

Asserting that if the U.N. General Assembly breaks up without reaching a decision on Palestine, the British Government must bear some of the blame and most of the cost, the Manchester Guardian this week-end declared editorially that Britain had made it clear that its Palestine policy is one of “complete, thorough and whole-hearted non-cooperation.”

Describing British delegate Sir Alexander Cadogan’s statement at Lake Success last Thursday as “grudging and niggardly,” the newspaper termed it “ill-mannered, to say the least.”

Meanwhile, Laborite M.P. Richard Crossman said yesterday at a meeting in Stafford that a solution to the Palestine problem might be the beginning of understanding between the United States and Soviet Russia.
