§ Mr. JANNER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, out of the bequest of £120,000 made by a Shanghai Jew, Mr. Kadoorie, for agricultural education in Palestine, a school for Arab agricultural training has been established and is already functioning under the auspices of the Palestine Government; how many pupils it has; why the corresponding school for Jews has not yet been completed although the money has been available for eight years; and when he expects the Jewish school to be opened?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER:
The Kadoorie Agricultural School for Arabs was opened in January, 1931, with 40 students. I have no information as to the number of students now under instruction. The construction of the corresponding school for Jews was delayed owing to the difficulty of securing a suitable site and of arranging an adequate water supply. The High Commissioner for Palestine anticipates that this school will be open for instruction in September, 1933.
