§ Mr. LANSBURY
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any political emigrants now or lately resident in Palestine, not eligible for amnesty by the French Government, are to be permitted to remain in that country?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
I understand that the only persons excluded from the amnesty are certain specified leaders of the Syrian rebellion. So far as I am aware, none of these persons is now, or has lately been, resident in Palestine. Such of them as are in Trans-Jordan are being required to leave that country. Any application on their part for permission to reside in Palestine would be a matter for consideration in consultation with the French authorities.
