Mandates Commission Asks England to Carry out Her Obligations in Palestine

Download PDF for this date

The Mandates Commission of the League of Nations has concluded its Palestine session, unanimously adopting the observations, without important changes of the draft submitted by the editorial commission.

The observations deal with the Palestine disturbances of last Summer the annual report and the various petitions whereby the attitude of the British government during the disturbances is criticized and demanding the energetic execution of all obligations under the Palestine Mandate which are recognized as compatible.

The observations will be published after the minutes of the Palestine session are published and after the observations are submitted to the British government and possibly also to the Council of the League of Nations. The publication can therefore be expected by the end of July for the consideration of the council at its September session. The fact that the observations were unanimously adopted may mean that the Zionist friends made concessions to the less friendly members of the Mandates Commission and it is not likely that the Mandates Commission exercised strong pressure upon the British government in its observations.
