Communication received from Mr. Fletcher-Cooke, United
Kingdom Delegation, Concerning Questions on Security
and the Commission’s Discharge of its Administrative
UNITED KINGDOM DELEGATION TO THE UNITED NATIONS
EMPIRE STATE BUILDING
NEW YORK 1, N. Y.
You will remember that when the United Kingdom appeared before the Commission on 30th January to answer certain questions under the headings (A) Security and (B) The Commission’s Discharge of its Administrative Responsibilities, the information necessary to answer Question B(8) was not available.
I now enclose two Schedules showing respectively
(1) the numbers in each Department of (a) British, (b) Arab, (c) Jewish and (d) other personnel, and
(2) the numbers and ranks by communities of the Government Officers in each Department / ranks shown in the Schedule are
You will appreciate that neither of these Schedules contain any reference to police other ranks and that the only police staff shown are senior police officers and clerical staff.
As I have only received one copy of each of these schedules, and as no doubt you will have to have a number of copies made, I should be most grateful if you could supply me with three copies of each of the Schedules.
NUMBER OF OFFICERS IN EACH DEPARTMENT OF THE PALESTINE ADMINISTRATION
AS AT 31 MARCH 1947, (EXCLUDING OTHER RANKS OF THE POLICE FORCE,
AND INDUSTRIAL WORKS ON SHORT TERM ENGAGEMENTS).
