October 1, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Executive of the Arab Congress has forwarded a memorandum to the Mandates Commission of the League of Nations expressing dissatisfaction with the policy of the High Commissioner Sir Herbert Samuel, especially with regard to immigration.

The memorandum points out that the High Commissioner is granting too many facilities for Jewish Immigration. It also complains of the land policy pursued by the High Commissioner which, according to the Executive, facilitates the acquisition of land by Jews.

The Arab Executive desires to counteract with this report the report submitted by Sir Herbert Samuel to the League of Nations.
