Chancellor argues strenuously in favor of the Arabs over the Zionists. So vexed by Jewish growth, he suggests Draconian legislation to protect the Arab peasantry; Chancellor fails to have the Mandate stopped and turned around in favor of the Arab community. His suggestions for restrictions on Jewish land purchases and immigration are not implemented, but will be legally enforced through the 1939 White Paper. Arabs’ hopes for a policy change are dashed; Zionists are euphoric that they are able to push back against staunchly pro-Arab British bureaucrats, thereby allowing unprecedented growth in the 1930s of the Jewish National Home.
