No Formal Invitation Sent to Jewish Agency to Participate in Talks on Palestine

August 22, 1946
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reports that the Jewish Agency and other Jewish groups have received invitations from the British Government to attend talks here on the Palestine issue were labelled “premature” by an authoritative source, who pointed out that the decision as to which groups are to be invited rests with the Cabinet as a whole.

Reuter reported today that “no new or formal invitation has been extended to the Jewish Agency to take part in the proposed talks in London with Arab leaders” on the Palestine issue.

Official quarters were unable to reveal which organizations or individuals were considered probable recipients of invitations, pointing out that under present conditions, any decision which has been reached can be changed at the last minute.
