Page 138 of this book says that

After the fiasco, following Grey's proposal in March 1916, the idea of using Zionism was shelved, while the death of Hugh O'Beirne in HMS Hampshire on 5 June 1916 deprived it of its staunchest supporter.
In fact O'Beirne was actually the chief architect of the proposal attributed to Grey, which was rejected by the French who may have regarded it as an attempt by the British to use the Jews to undermine French interests in Palestine.
