Measures Proposed by the Government of Palestine
re. Import of Foodstuffs During the Period
15 May to 30 June 1948.
(Memorandam by D. Ghosh)
In pursuance of this idea it had approached the Jewish and the Arab Chambers of Commerce to take up the responsibility of vetting and forwarding applications for import licences by their member firms, subject to the informal condition that the number of applications should be, for reasons of administrative convenience, as few as possible.
The Government had also indicated that Messrs. Steel Bros., who had an extensive organisation which had worked efficiently during the war and post war years, might be used by them as their sole or chief agent if they so wished. The matter had also been brought to the notice of the Jewish Agency and the Arab Higher Executive. No replies had yet been received.
