Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Illegal Immigrants. ( 3 Ebr 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I could not say.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Illegal Immigrants. ( 3 Ebr 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am sure that the High Commissioner will share that wish, but in present circumstances it may not be possible to get conclusive proof, and we must give the benefit of the doubt to the State in those circumstances.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Illegal Immigrants. ( 3 Ebr 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am not aware of that, and I am certain that if offers of help have been made they have been accepted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Illegal Immigrants. ( 3 Ebr 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am not sure that it would be desirable to give the exact figures, but I will give as full information as I can.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy.: Illegal Immigrants. ( 3 Ebr 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I have seen a certain amount of the evidence, but I am not certain I have seen everything. On the evidence which I have seen I entirely agree with the action which the High Commissioner has taken.

Oral Answers to Questions — British and French Colonial Ministers (Discussions). (21 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: As the reply is inevitably a long one, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the Official Report.

Colonial Policy. (21 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: This House is a superb instrument for the levelling of constructive criticism at the policies of His Majesty's Government, and the critical faculty of the House is customarily as sharp in Colonial Office Debates as it is in Debates on any other question. I readily agree that the criticism which has been offered on the different parts of Colonial policy, both at Question Time and in our...

Colonial Policy. (21 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: We are extremely short of time, and I should be glad to go on with my speech, if the hon. Member will forgive me for not giving way. We have already made a statement accepting three or four of the main recommendations of the Royal Commission. In the statement of a few weeks ago the Government said that the other very varied recommendations were being all taken up with the Governors of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Jews and Arabs (Enlistment). (20 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: Since the war began 1,709 Jews and 392 Arabs have enlisted in Palestine for service overseas. These figures include the Auxiliary Military Pioneer Corps already in France, which contains 742 Jews and 306 Arabs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Jews and Arabs (Enlistment). (20 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The reason why I did not give the figures last week was the reason I gave in answer to my hon. and gallant Friend's Question, which was that the exact figures were not available in this country, and I had to get them from the High Commissioner. With regard to the second part of the Question, nobody doubts the loyalty of the Jews to this country, and we very greatly appreciate it. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Palestine.: Jews and Arabs (Enlistment). (20 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am afraid I have not seen the official statement to which the hon. Member refers, and I very much doubt whether it was official. The figures I have given are the accurate figures of the unit serving in France.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Divisional Food Office (Carnarvon). (13 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am not in a position to interpret, authoritatively, multi-lateral international agreements. But the position is that the Buffer Stock Executive is guided by such general instructions as the International Tin Committee may from time to time issue. If the committee is not unanimous, instructions can be given if 11 votes out of 20 are in favour. Belligerent countries have eight votes out of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Divisional Food Office (Carnarvon). (13 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The hon. Member is mistaken regarding the object of the tin buffer stock scheme. This is stated in Article 2 of the agreement by which it was constituted to be to reduce the large price ranges that have occurred in the past to narrower limits.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Divisional Food Office (Carnarvon). (13 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: No, Sir. The real reason is that which is expressed in the agreement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Divisional Food Office (Carnarvon). (13 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The responsibility for the preparation of tin statistics lies upon officials paid from the funds of the International Tin Research Scheme, and I am satisfied that these statistics are accurately and objectively prepared. As regards the second part of the Question, I am satisfied that the arrangements made since the war are such as the British representatives on the International Tin Committee...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies.: Divisional Food Office (Carnarvon). (13 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I do not think that it would be in the public interest to disclose the private proceedings of the Malayan delegation to the International Tin Committee, even if I were aware of them. I must point out that the two Malayan delegates to whom the hon. Member refers have performed their duties with great skill, and to the benefit of the Malayan industry, for many years, and I am satisfied that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Navy.: Colonial Research Advisory Committee. ( 6 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: The appointment of this committee must await the enactment of the legislation which will be necessary to give effect to the Government's statement of policy. As regards the second part of the Question, I am giving consideration to the constitution of the committee, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement.

Orders of the Day — Palestine. ( 6 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I want to correct that statement of my right hon. Friend. That is not the pledge that was given. The White Paper has in fact been in operation since May of last year. The pledge that was given was as follows: We said we would take the White Paper which was already in operation, as the House well knew, to the Council of the League of Nations, and that if the Council took a decision which...

Orders of the Day — Palestine. ( 6 Maw 1940)

Mr Malcolm Macdonald: I am deeply sorry that this controversy should be raised at the present critical time. If I may utter a few personal sentences, I think I regret it more deeply than any other hon. Member in this House. More than anyone else for the time being I have to bear the anxiety, the burden, and the bitterness of this difficult, contrary, but by no means hopeless problem. I make no complaint about...
