SUBCOMMITTEE I OF THE
AD HOC COMMITTEE ON PALESTINE
Eighth meeting
Press Release GA/PAL/38
29 October 1947
PALESTINE SUB COMMITTEE GIVEN MORE TIME TO STUDY UNSCOP REPORT

-----

Reconvening in private this afternoon, the Subcommittee heard DR. HERBERT V. EVITT, Chairman of the full Committee, state that the time limit of 29 October set to the Subcommittee for submitting its report had been extended, but that no later deadline had been fixed. It was hoped, he said, that the full Committee would be in a position to give consideration to the Subcommittee's report next Monday.

The Subcommittee then took up the question of boundaries. After some discussion on the method of work it was decided to ask the Chairman, Mr, Ksawery Pruszynski (Poland), the Rapporteur, Professor Henrique Rodriguez Fabregat (Uruguay) and Mr. Paul Mohn, Swedish alternate delegate on the UNSCOP, to prepare maps and collect statistical data on the various suggested modifications to the boundaries of the Majority Plan of the UNSCOP Report, for further study.

The Subcommittee afterwards went over Chapter 4 of Section C of the Partition Plan of the UNSCOP Report, This chapter deals with guarantees and the interpretation of Chapters 1, 2, and 3 of Section C. It was approved with a minor amendment.

The Subcommittee then passed on to Section D (Economic Union) of the Partition Plan, and on this matter heard Mr. MOSHE SHERTOK and Mr. DAVID HORWITZ, respectively Heads of the Political and of the Economic Departments of the Jewish Agency for Palestine.

The Subcommittee will reconvene in private on Friday, 31 October at 11 a.m.
