Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine. – in the House of Commons on 21st February 1922.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what control the proposed Legislative Assembly in Palestine will exercise on emigration?
The exact scope of the functions to be exercised by the proposed Legislative Council for Palestine is still a matter of discussion. I should prefer to make no statement on the subject for the present.
May I ask if, at the present time, it is a fact that the majority of the residents in Palestine have no control whatsoever over emigration into their own country?
It certainly is the fact, and if the hon. Gentleman had followed the many Debates and discussions on this subject, he would hardly think it necessary to put forward such a query.
