§ 33. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for India how many of the 60 casualties at Aden were Jews and how many Arabs?
§ Sir S. HOARE
Twenty-five were Jews. It is not stated in the telegraphic reports received whether the others were all Arabs. A report on the disturbances is expected shortly by mail. Meanwhile, the Chief Commissioner telegraphed on 30th May that the situation was normal.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
In view of the suggestion of the Noble Lord the Member for Horsham (Earl Winterton) the other day that it was the Arabs who attacked the Jews, will the right hon. Gentleman in his answer next week deal with that side of the question?
