keep prominently in mind any rights of the Government of the United
States of America under the instrument to which the honorable
member refers".
  To the further question "Have any representations been received
from the Government of the United States of America up to date?"
the Colonial Secretary replied "No sir".
  Asked when it is proposed to publish the report of the Royal Com-
mission and to make a declaration of the Government's policy in con-
nection therewith, the Colonial Secretary replied "It is proposed to
release the report in time for its publication with a Command Paper
containing a short statement of the policy of His Majesty's Govern-
ment on the morning of 8th July and copies of the report and a sum-
mary will be available for honorable members in the vote office some
time on Wednesday evening".

  277. Your 403, June 24, 5 p. m.Y It is the Department's understand-
ing from Alling's conversation with the Head of the Eastern Depart-
ment of the Foreign Office (see penultimate paragraph of Alling's
memorandum of June 1) that American rights under the American
British Convention of December 3, 1924, were considered to be "largely
of an economic character" and that consequently the British Govern-
ment would probably not find it necessary to consult this Government
with respect to changes that might be proposed in Palestine as a result
of the Report of the Royal Commission.
  I should appreciate receiving at the earliest possible moment any
further detailed elucidation of the official British position in this
matter that you can obtain.
