The Palestine Arab Higher Committee’s decision to join the London conference will not affect the Jewish Agency’s position on attendance, a spokesman for the Agency declared today.

Moshe Shortok, head of the political department of the Agency, left for Washington yesterday. He is expected back in London next Tuesday, but his return on the scheduled opening date of the London parley is purely coincidental, it was said.
