No. 9/29/48
30th January, 1948

Dear Mr. Lisicky:

You will remember that you raised with me in conversation the other day the question of a security force to preserve law and order in Jerusalem.

2. We have now received further information from Palestine on this point which may be helpful to you.

3. The Government of Palestine have informed us that if there is to be nay question of calling for volunteers from the British Section of the Police for service in a security force in Jerusalem, they must know definitely within the next two to three weeks, otherwise there will be little or no chance of any such volunteers being available.

Signed: Yours sincerely,
Alexander Cadogan

Monsieur Karel Lisicky,
Chairman,
United Nations Commission on Palestine.
