Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I will do my very best to keep clearly in mind the Rulings which you have given, Sir Dennis, though they will involve, I am afraid, some readjustments of what I had intended to say, but I still hope I shall say something relevant to the Vote before us. As I understand it, we are entitled to discuss in relation to Section H.6 the terms of reference under which the Palestine Technical...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I will do so with pleasure. The more it is read the better I shall like it. It is quoted on page 5 of the White Paper: The House of Commons, on the 21st July, 1937, passed a Resolution to the following effect: 'That the proposals contained in Command Paper No. 5531 relating to Palestine should be brought before the League of Nations with a view to enabling His Majesty's Government, after...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman is entitled, if he chooses, to make that deduction, but, in point of fact, the House never indicated any preference for a new Commission to be sent to the spot.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: No, the words were "after full inquiry," and I am not sure that anyone would imply that there should be a special commission such as is now being sent. That is not the inquiry which people had in their minds. We do not need more knowledge on Palestine. Palestine has been examined, re-examined and re-reexamined over and over again. It is not information we wanted but an inquiry as to the...

Mr Morgan Jones: Here or there?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Does the right hon. Gentleman really contemplate that these next three or four years are going to be years not characterised by any uneasiness at all? Does he think the people will be content for all this time to wait for some decision of some sort given by some body? Clearly he is riding, it seems to me, for the most perilous disaster. You cannot expect people in this situation to go on year...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Colonial and Middle Eastern Services. ( 8 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: When the right hon. Gentleman says that the Technical Commission is bound by the Peel Commission Report, does he imply that they are committed to a form of partition, and not necessarily to the Peel Commission's particular form of partition?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Government Hospitality. ( 1 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I understand that King Carol is to be entertained this month, that is to say, before the end of the financial year. In that case, does the right hon. Gentleman anticipate spending public money during this financial year which is not covered in the sum for which he is now asking? Evidently the right hon. Gentleman does not know what the answer is.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Government Hospitality. ( 1 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman now tells us that he has spent this £5,000 before this Committee has approved of it. I ask him again whether, during this month of March—the financial year ends at the end of the month—he is proposing to ask for money to expend before the end of the year is upon us?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Government Hospitality. ( 1 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Do I understand from the right hon. Gentleman that, in point of fact, his original answer was inaccurate and that the money has not up to now been spent?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Government Hospitality. ( 1 Mar 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I am sorry, but we get deeper and deeper into trouble about this thing. Now I understand that we are asked for £5,000 extra to carry us to the end of the year. The Government would not ask for £5,000 unless they knew expressly upon what they wanted to spend the money. Now the right hon. Gentleman tells us that he is so in doubt about what the £5,000 is wanted for that it might include...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: United Provinces and Bihar (Prisoners). (21 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Are any negotiations now in progress between the Viceroy on the one side and the Prime Ministers of the various Provincial Governments on the other with regard to this difficult situation?

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Federation. (21 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: asked the Under-Secretary of State for India (1) what is the present state of the negotiations for the entry of the Indian native States into the Federation; in how many cases agreement has been reached on the Instrument of Accession; and whether he is considering the production of a revised draft Instrument of Accession for final consideration by the Princes? (2) whether he can make any...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Federation. (21 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: When these Instruments of Accession are finally agreed upon, will they be placed upon the Table of the House; and, further, when they are agreed upon, will they be communicated to the Ministers of the various Provincial Governments in India?
