§ 35. Sir A. Knox
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has considered a memorandum from the Arab chambers of commerce of Palestine asking that the restrictions laid down by Article 18 of the Mandate may be so interpreted as to enable exporters from Palestine to obtain some measures of reciprocity in negotiations with other countries; and what steps he proposes to take?
Mr. M. MacDonald
The memorandum was presented to the High Commissioner for Palestine on 4th January. He met the signatories on 9th January and will forward a copy to me as soon as possible with his comments.
