See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Great Britain would agree to the establishment of a “National Government” in Palestine provided this government recognized the Balfour Declaration containing the Jewish national home pledge as interpreted in the former Colonial Secretary Churchill’s White Paper, the Aliph Ba, an unusually well-informed Arab newspaper says it learns. In response to King Hussein’s demand for a native government for Palestine the British Government, the Aliph Ba declares, has proposed an amendment to the Anglo-Arab Treaty now pending acceeding to the demand for a native government if the Zionist pledge was honored.
