Wailing Wall Commission’s Report in Colonial Office Hands

Download PDF for this date

The report of the Wailing Wall Commission is already in the hands of the British Colonial Office, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today from a reliable source. The Colonial Office has not yet had an opportunity to consider the report and hence has not decided whether it will be published.

In any case copies of the report will have to be submitted to the League of Nations before publication as the Commission is an international body appointed under the authority of the League of Nations. The Commission of three members recently completed its report on the claims of Moslems and Jews to the Wailing Wall.

The Colonial Office today denied to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency the truth of the rumor current in Palestine that Jamal Husseini, London representative of the Arab Executive, was endeavoring to prevent the publication of the Wailing Wall Commission’s report. The rumor is without the slightest foundation, the Colonial Office said.
