See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The request of Sir Herbert Samuel that wider powers be conferred upon him and the Administration in Palestine has been declined, according to the Cairo correspondent of the DAILY EXPRESS. The correspondent asserts that the Arab Delegation has ascertained in official quarters that the British High Commissioner while on leave in London had asked the Government to give him greater lee-way, but that the Cabinet refused.
