asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why, in view of the many criminal activities of the Irgun Tzvai Le-Umi, national military organisation, the leaders of this Zionist society have not been arrested and prosecuted?

Mr. M. MacDonald:

The hon. Member may rest assured that the activities of organisations such as that referred to in the question are carefully watched by the Palestine Government. I have no doubt that in any case where action was found necessary it would be promptly taken. In fact, a considerable number of Jewish extremists are at present under detention in Palestine.
