Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Municipal Loan, Tel Aviv. (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: The most urgent works for which the municipal corporation of Tel Aviv desire to raise a loan are a new water supply and drainage system estimated to cost more than £1,000,000. With the assistance of the Palestine Government, negotiations were undertaken for a loan of this amount, but, owing to the disturbed state of the country and the uncertainty of the future, these negotiations have, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Municipal Loan, Tel Aviv. (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Certainly, we do all we can. There is a fairly good water supply, but, as the hon. Member knows, particularly in the summer, water-borne sewerage is not essential. The great thing is to remedy as soon as possible the urgent matters and to improve the existing state of affairs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Municipal Loan, Tel Aviv. (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Oh yes, it is obviously desirable to have water and drainage schemes covering the whole of this municipality, but obviously it is a very big undertaking, as the town has grown so rapidly. There is a series of subordinate local schemes. But I quite agree with the idea.

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: There has been no material change in the situation since my last statement. I have received a report of a major encounter with an armed gang west of Jenin on 4th March, in which 60 or 70 Arabs are believed to have been killed and 16 prisoners were taken, with 17 rifles, 11 bombs, and a quantity of ammunition.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Terrorism. (16 Mar 1938)

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Mufti. (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I understand that Haj Amin is kept under surveillance by the French authorities in Syria. The High Commissioner for Palestine has received information from time to time regarding alleged political activities on the part of the Mufti, and this matter is engaging the attention of His Majesty's Government in close consultation with the French authorities, both in Paris and Damascus.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Mufti. (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: I cannot be that, as he is not living in territory under British control. He is under the surveillance of the French authorities, and all that we can do is to make representations to the Government in Paris and through our Consul in Damascus.

Oral Answers to Questions — Sierra Leone (Workmen's Compensation). (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: There is at present no general workmen's compensation legislation in Sierra Leone. The draft of the comprehensive Workmen's Compensation Ordinance for the Colonial Dependencies in East and West Africa to which I referred in my reply to the hon. Member of 11th February, 1937, has been sent to the Government of Sierra Leone with a view to legislation being enacted as speedily as possible. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Sierra Leone (Workmen's Compensation). (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: Yes. I have given instructions that, in view of the rapid expansion of the iron mining industry in Sierra Leone, there should be a comprehensive review, not only on this matter, of the labour interests that are likely to arise.

Oral Answers to Questions — West Africa (Missionary Schools). (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: There are many missionary schools in West Africa provided by missionary societies whose membership includes foreign as well as British adherents, and I do not think it would be possible to obtain the information asked for by the hon. Member Legislation exists in the West African Colonies providing for the inspection and supervision by Government officers of all educational activities in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — West Africa (Missionary Schools). (16 Mar 1938)

Mr William Ormsby-Gore: It is extremely difficult. There are international conventions regarding the freedom of missionary societies. Take a body like the Seventh Day Adventists, which is partly American and partly British. I think it would be impossible for me to say that all their books should be printed in England rather than in America.
