asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will assure the House that the decision of U.N.O. as regards Palestine will be neither accepted nor rejected until it has been debated in Parliament; and that no action on the decision will be taken until after this House has reassembled after the Summer Adjournment.

I cannot at this stage commit His Majesty's Government to any restriction upon their freedom to take such decisions as may be necessary during the forthcoming Assembly debates, but the importance of associating Parliament with the policy of His Majesty's Government in Palestine will, of course, be borne in mind.

Can the right hon. Gentle-man give us any idea when an announcement is likely to be made? Will it be much before Parliament reassembles? Has he any idea?
