No Change in Palestine Policy, Arabs Are Told.

See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The whole question of the British policy in Palestine is being considered by the Bonar Law Government “without bias”, but no hope can be held out of any departure from the policy of the late Government as laid down in the White Paper June 1922, the Duke of Devonshire, Winston Churchill’s successor as Secretary of State for the Colonies this afternoon told the Palestine Arab Delegation at the Colonial Office.

The interview with the Arab Delegation, which comprised Musa Kazim Pasha, Chairman of the Moslem-Christian Union and Shibley Jemal, Secretary, lasted over an hour. The Arabs presented their views against Zionism before the Duke of Devonshire in substantially the same form as they were given to Lord Curzon at Lausanne.
