If my hon. Friend will give me particulars of any persons concerned, my Noble Friend will ask the High Commissioner for Palestine to furnish a report.

Major Cazalet:

Is my right hon. Friend aware that many of those recently admitted have been closely associated in the past with the activities of the Mufti?

As I do not know to what individuals my hon. and gallant Friend is referring, I cannot answer the Question.

Will my right hon. Friend make clear that there will be no bar on Arabs from Iraq and Iran unless on the ground that they are seditious?
