Mr. David Adams:
asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that recently nine Jews arriving in Palestine in an open boat from Greece have been arrested and interned; and whether, in view of possible further escapes, sanctuary will be given to Jews, from Greece and other Nazi-occupied territories, in Palestine, similar to that accorded to non-Jewish refugees?
The High Commissioner for Palestine reports that no such incident has occurred. With regard to the second part of the Question, it is not felt possible, for security reasons, to give facilities for the admission to Palestine of persons coming from enemy-occupied territories. This applies both to Jews and non-Jews.
