Recommendations to the British Colonial Office as to how to guarantee the safety of the Jewish population of Palestine in the future and to provide for the maintenance of law and order in the country are understood to have been made by Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner.

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent learns that Sir John recommended the maintenance of a permanent British garrison in Palestine as the first measure, and the reorganization of the police forces in the country. Under this plan, the Palestine police is to be composed of three equal parts, a British, a Jewish and an Arab. The garrison is to consist mostly of mobile units, of aircraft and armored car detachments.
