In the memorandum to the Conciliation Commission dated 18 May (document AR/8), the Arab delegations proposed inter a1ia:
a) the abrogation of the Absentee Act and the annulment of all measures taken in conformity with this Act;
this proposal was transmitted to the Israeli delegation which reiterated the position adopted by it in reply to point 5 of the Conciliation Commission's memorandum of 11 April (see document SR/LM/19). This reply had been considered unsatisfactory by the Commission which in a memorandum dated 18 May requested clarification of the Israeli position (see document IS/16); no further reply has been received, except for a letter from the Head of the Israeli delegation dated 24 May, to the effect that the Arab memorandum containing this point had been sent to Tel Aviv to be studied by the Government of Israel;
b) the, suspension of all measures of requisition and occupation of Arab houses and lands;
(The Commission on 22 June decided to transmit this question to the General Committee for examination (see document SR/74).
B. Regarding territorial questions (Political aspect)
On 19 June the Israeli delegation requested the Conciliation Commission to study the question of a plebiscite among the Arabs of Palestine in order to determine the future of the Arab parts of the country (see document IS/26).
This request was transmitted to the Arab delegations for their information on 23 June.
