asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, as the Zionist Executive has published a report regarding the riots which took place during Easter, 1920, he will lay upon the Table of the House the Report of General Palin's Committee of Inquiry, in order that the House may be put in possession of the actual facts?

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Twickenham on the 3rd March last year. I have no knowledge of any report having been published by the Zionist Executive, but in any case I see no reason for His Majesty's Government to modify their original decision.

Will the right hon. Gentleman say why he will not publish this report, and place the House in possession of the facts?

Really, the troubles of 1920 are long away, and we have had lots of troubles in 1921 and 1922.
