The demand for the establishment in Palestine of a representative assembly was renewed by the Palestine Arab Executive, the anti-Zionist body, during an interview granted by the High Commissioner before his departure from Jerusalem to a delegation of that body headed by Musa Kazim Pasha.

According to an official statement issued by the Palestine government, the High Commissioner told Musa Kazim Pasha, who requested a reply to the memorandum of the Arab Executive concerning the subject, that he had given the question anxious consideration since his arrival in the country and that he intends to discuss this important matter with the Secretary for the Colonies and consult him regarding the proposals the Palestine government might be able to formulate. Pending the full discussion he was unable to give a definite reply.
