The first of these papers is the correspondence between Sir Henry McMahon and Hussein ibn Ali during 1915 and 1916, concerning future independence for those Arab countries that gave assistance to the Allied Powers against Turkey in the First World War. Palestine’s inclusion or exclusion from these promises became an ongoing problem. In 1937, after the Peel Commission report recommended partition, McMahon wrote to the Times to clarify the nature of the pledge, which he said excluded Palestine. A further commission was set up to decide the issue, the ensuing report of which is given in the second paper. Also included in the lot is a further British Government Paper regarding the division of the Ottoman Empire after the First World War.
