The 23% Area of "Palestine"

On 16 September 1922, the League of Nations approved a British memorandum detailing its intended implementation of that clause [Article 25], namely to exclude Transjordan from the articles related to Jewish settlement.

From that point onwards, Britain administered the 23% west of the Jordan as "Palestine", and the 77% east of the Jordan as "Transjordan." The subsequent two mandates were administrated under one single British Foreign Office High Commissioner
