asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can now say whether he will publish as a White Paper the evidence and proceedings in the recent trials relating to the smuggling of arms in Palestine, in which the Jewish agency, the Hagana and the Hisdatruth are mentioned and include in the White Paper a verbatim report of the speech impugning the honour and integrity of the British military courts, officials and witnesses delivered by Mr. Ben Guision on Monday, 4th October, to the Jewish National Assembly in Jerusalem?

I have not yet seen the complete vebatim reports of the trials, and I have nothing to add to previous statements that have been made in reply to Questions on this subject.
