Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: China and Japan. ( 1 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us what satisfaction the Japanese Government have given other than by way of apologies?

Ballot for Notices of Motions.: Bombing of Civilians in War Time. ( 1 Feb 1938)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to give notice that To-morrow, I shall call attention to the Bombing of Civilians in War Time, and move a Resolution.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I beg to move, in line I, to leave out from "That," to the end of the Question, and to add instead thereof: the proposals of the Royal Commission, with their far-reaching effects upon the Jewish and Arab peoples in Palestine, should be closely examined by a Joint Select Committee before Parliament is committed I wish at the outset to take the opportunity of associating myself with the tribute...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: It makes no difference to my argument.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: When the League has given its preliminary approval, the matter will come back here, but the League will have been committed, and we shall be told by the right hon. Gentleman that the League has decided in principle, and then I am afraid it will be too late to ask the House to undo something on which the League has taken a general decision. Let me turn now to the next point. The Report has...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I can only say that if this is to be that fulfilment of pledges and promises to which I referred at the beginning, it is a pity that those pledges and promises were not made more explicit long ago. Here is this strip of fertile land given to the Jews, and next to them the Arabs occupy behind it high land, dry and unproductive. There is going to be among them great dissatisfaction. That cannot...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: There will not be a town left in the State, because all the rest are under the Mandatory Power, except Tel-Aviv. Take Tel-Aviv, a most important port. The Report actually says that the people of the Jewish State are not to be allowed to exercise control of the Customs there, in their ports of Haifa and Jaffa.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I mean Haifa. They are not going to have complete control of the Customs there, and they are not even sure that they are going to have complete control of Tel-Aviv as a port. Now will the right hon. Gentleman tell me what he means by flinging about this word "sovereignty"? You are abusing language when you use the word "sovereignty."

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: There is to be a joint port at Tel-Aviv.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: But these are the facts. Jaffa and Tel-Aviv are to be under the control of a joint board. If my statement of fact is right, and the right hon. Gentleman is wrong, I cannot quite understand the Government giving their approval to this thing.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman has forgotten the point with which I started. He says that they are not committed to everything in the Report, and that is true, but they have expressed their general approval of the Report, and the House to-night is being asked to agree with them in that approval. I say that, from my point of view, this junction of Jaffa—but let me read paragraph 31, on page 388,...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman may return to the point again, but I have put my point, and I still adhere to my analysis of the situation.

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Very well, then, that is a little advance. Now let me take the transition period. The Report suggests that immigration of Jews into the Arab State is to be prohibited, but it does not say that immigration of Arabs into the Jewish State is to be prohibited. Is that just? Take another point. Everybody knows that there has been built up in Palestine a most valuable piece of industrial...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Yes, and for Christians and Moslems, too. Jerusalem has holy places for all alike. But outside that area where the holy places are there are 75,000 Jews, and they are to be thrust outside their independent State. I do not deny, of course, what is well known to everybody, the significance of Jerusalem for us all, but I would like to quote a passage, a most eloquent passage, from an interview...

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: The point is this: If 1,000,000 Arabs cannot live with 400,000 Jews in the whole of Palestine, how can it be argued that 225,000 Arabs can live with 228,000 Jews in the Jewish State?

Palestine. (21 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: I challenge the Noble Lord to contradict this statement, that, while the Jews are to be prohibited from entering the Arab State, Arabs are not to be prohibited from entering the Jewish State, and it is not possible to guarantee what will be the effect, as regards peace, of these large numbers of Arabs in the Jewish State.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport.: Trunk Roads, South Wales and Monmouthshire. (12 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Is that the maximum which the Government can do to help the distressed areas?

Orders of the Day — Supply. ( 6 Jul 1937)

Mr Morgan Jones: Before the right hon. Gentleman passes from the question of transference, may I ask whether the Ministry have any system whereby they may follow up a case of transference to see if the persons concerned are living in decent conditions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Spare-Time Posts. ( 5 Jul 1937)
