Members of the Palestine Arab Higher Committee were reported today to have urged the Arab League not to cooperate with the Anglo-American inquiry commission on Palestine until the ex-Mufti of Jerusalem is permitted to return to Palestine.

At the same time, it was reported in a broadcast over the Cairo radio that the Council of the Arab League had unanimously adopted a decision to approach various governments in Europe in order to obtain the return to Palestine of Arabs exiled for political reasons. The proposal came from three leaders of the Palestine Arabs now in Cairo in connection with the activities of the League.
