See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The treaty between Great Britain and Transjordania, regulating the status of the western part of Palestine, an integral part of the Palestine Mandate territory, was ratified today by the Transjordanian Legislative Council at its session at Amman.

The treaty has long been a subject of controversy and the nationalist party in Transjordania was opposed to the ratification which was urged by Emir Abdullah, ruler of the territory. Under its provisions Transjordania is given a measure of independence. Its government is to enjoy the advice of British experts in administration and military affairs.
