§ Mr. T. Williams
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the withdrawal of the partition scheme, action can now be taken to rearrange the boundaries between the cities of Tel Aviv and Jaffa so as to enable the Jewish quarters of Jaffa to be brought under Tel Aviv municipal control in accordance with the desires frequently expressed by the inhabitants of those quarters?
Mr. M. MacDonald
To a large extent this matter must depend for its solution upon co-operation between the Jews and Arabs of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. I doubt2008W whether there would be advantage in reopening the question at the present juncture, but if a favourable opportunity offers it will be raised.
