(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Lieut. Com. Kenworthy, Labor M. P., asked parliament whether the Colonial Office intends to issue a further White Paper or statement on the Wailing Wall, because of the masonry addition which the Moslem authorities placed on the Wall.

Colonial Secretary Amery replied that the White-Paper which was issued by the government was based on the subject of the question. The Government are not prepared to state the nature of further reports, but will consider what information should be made known. Concerning Mohamed Ali, Indian Moslem leader, the Colonial Office will consider whether inquiries need be made into anything which the Indian Moslem leader said during his present visit in Palestine.
