Representatives of the Vaad Leumi, (Jewish Council of Palestine) have visited Sir Gilbert Clayton, the Civil Secretary, to protest the appointment of only 50 Jewish members to the gendarmerie as against 100 Arabs.

The Jewish delegation pointed out that the appointments were in violation of the agreement reached previously to appoint equal numbers of Jews and Arabs.
