Bevin Plan (1947)

A plan put forward by British Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin at the London Conference on Palestine on 27 January 1947. Following up on the rejected Morrison-Grady Scheme, Bevin suggested that Palestine be placed under a trusteeship regime for a period of five years, maintaining the cantonization principle suggested in the previous scheme. The admission of 4,000 Jewish immigrants per month would be allowed for two years. If conditions allow, Palestine would become independent at the end of the five-year period. Like the Morrison-Grady Scheme, this plan was rejected by Jews and Arabs alike.
