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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I am amazed at the speech of the right hon. Gentleman. The right hon. Gentleman's first line of attack on me was that there had been delay in carrying out the recommendations of the Peel Commission—why had I not gone forward immediately and with decision to implement the Peel Commission's Report? What does the Peel Commission recommend? Partition. And the right hon. Gentleman, speaking on...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The majority. As the official spokesman of the Labour party in winding up this Debate, the right hon. and gallant Gentleman says that the majority of his colleagues are opposed to partition, and he blames me for not hastening on with partition! As usual his idea is to pick and choose those parts of the Peel Commission's report that suit his wholly one-sided view of the situation in order to...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I say that it is, and that the right hon. Gentleman's whole attitude on this question of Palestine is one of the major causes of embarrassment and difficulty of successive British Governments.

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Successive British Governments. He utterly fails to accept what was laid down first quite clearly by the Labour Government in 1929 and 1930, of which he was a supporter, which went to the League on this proposition that the Mandate, which he wishes to see implemented, but implemented in his own way, was a dual Mandate, with equal obligations to Jews and Arabs. Now, really, I ask the...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: That clearly is out of order, but the right hon. and gallant Gentleman has made an attack on me personally and I have every right to reply to it.

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: All along, in connection with Palestine the right hon. and gallant Gentleman makes continual attacks on me, personally, and represents me as an enemy of the Jewish people. That is not so, and such statements are most unfair. With that I propose to leave the right hon. and gallant Gentleman because his speech dealt entirely with generalities. There was one exception. He asked us why we did...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: If there was one thing that was made clear at Geneva and elsewhere, it was that Article 1 of the Mandate imposed on the mandatory Power, and the mandatory Power alone, the responsibility for maintaining law and order in Palestine. The mandatory Power in Palestine is this country. The task of maintaining law and order is a hard task indeed. I think these continual attacks on the troops, and...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Therefore, it is essential that British troops should be in Palestine, and that this Supplementary Estimate should be presented to the Committee. As long as conditions obtain in Palestine such as those which obtain at present, these requirements are necessary. I was asked certain specific questions with which I should like to deal at once, as I understand this Debate is to end at half-past...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I understood from the Chief Whip of the Opposition that it would be convenient for the Opposition that this Debate should close at half-past seven o'clock and that a Vote should be taken before the consideration of the Private Bill.

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: And what did the right hon. and gallant Gentleman do to me?

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The hon. Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Morgan Jones) asked a question as to the basis of the terms of reference of the Technical Commission, and it is important that I should clear up these matters, because there are misunderstandings. The basis of the terms of reference of the Technical Commission is the Peel Commission's Report. I wish to make it clear that the Government stand exactly where...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: They are committed to the underlying principles. I cannot quote the exact words, but they are on record. They are not committed to the particular details which the Peel Commission themselves said were only tentative. They are not committed to the precise form of corridor suggested between Jerusalem and Jaffa if any form of corridor should be found necessary. At Geneva it was made clear by the...

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

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I have made it abundantly clear that we have never adopted the recommendations of the Peel Commission's report in favour of the "political high level." We adopted a purely arbitrary level while conditions were being restored. There will have to be another arbitrary period. What that will be I shall announce in due course when it has been decided. It has not been decided yet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Sentence (Jacob Segal). ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I have received a report on this case and I understand that the sentence has been reduced to one year's imprisonment. As regards the second part of the question, 30 instances of attack on Jewish omnibuses were reported in the period 1st December, 1937–23rd February, 1938, but only three of these attacks occurred during February, and the only casualty was one Jew slightly wounded. Special...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Sentence (Jacob Segal). ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I have often made it clear to the House that I have no power, under the Constitution, to revise any sentence.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Terrorism. ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Terrorist activity still continues. During the last week of February there occurred one murder, three armed robberies and several cases of sniping and sabotage.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Terrorism. ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: As I say, both military and police have been reinforced and every activity is being undertaken, but, as the House knows, the trouble is now deep-seated and widespread.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Terrorism. ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: This refers only to last week, and I could not possibly have information yet.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Patriarch of Jerusalem. ( 2 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The Right Reverend Archbishop Timotheos Themelis was elected as Patriarch in 1935, but it was found necessary to delay confirmation of his election pending the conclusion of the negotiations with regard to certain amendments of the Fundamental Law of the Patriarchate which the High Commissioner regarded as essential in the public interest, including the preservation of peace and order. These...
