Abstract: A locally compact group G is WCHP if every weakly compact homomorphism from $ {L^1}(G)$ into a Banach algebra has finite-dimensional range, and is $ {\text{WCHP}^ + }$ if every extension of G by an abelian group is WCHP. We verify the $ {\text{WCHP}^ + }$ property for certain locally compact groups, including all Moore groups and all connected groups.
