Sir Alexander Cadogan told the Palestine Committee that Britain tould not share the administration of Pales- tine, temporarily, with a United Nations Commission. A sub-committee had recommended that the Commission should go to Palestine immediately to prepare to take over the full administration when the British mandate ended. Sir Alexander added that no better way could be found of creating con- fusion and disorder. Obviously such a decision of authority would have a disastrous consequence. As long as the Government held a mandate it must insist on having undivided con- trol. He assured the Committee that that did not imply there would be any change In Britain's plan to with- draw from Palestine as quickly as possible. The statement was something of a minor bombshell. Members of tile partition sub-committee looked at one another with puzzled expressions, re- alising that Britain's statement up- set many important provisions in the implementation, of the report. Keavery Prusanski, of Poland, chairman of the partition sub-com- mittee, immediately proposed tho adjournment to give time for consul- tation with the Governments. , Describing the British statement as fraught with grave consequences the committee adjourned until to-day WORLD CONFERENCE ON TROPICAL DISEASES WASHINGTON, Friday.
