asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will ask for a report on the technical possibilities of the Lowdermilk Plan for the development of Palestine.

These proposals are at present the subject of private technical investigation. At a later stage, when they are more fully formulated, I will certainly bear in mind my hon. Friend's suggestion.
