293. Your 377, July 28, 5 p.m. Personal and Confidential for the Ambassador.

Are we correct in assuming that the recent announcement of the membership and terms of reference of the Royal Commission of Inquiry indicates that the British Government has abandoned, for the time being at least, any plans it may have had to suspend temporarily Jewish immigration into Palestine? Any information you can obtain discreetly as to the present status of this matter would be most helpful.
