(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An ordinance abolishing the duty on all goods exported from Palestine was issued today by High Commissioner Plumer.

The ordinance does not include tobacco and antiquities. Much importance is attached to this ordinance in Jewish circles as it is believed that it will facilitate the development of the Jewish industry in Palestine.

The recent closing of the Delphiner silk factory in Tel Aviv is believed to have been among the reasons which convinced the government of the necessity of immediate steps to facilitate and encourage industrial enterprises in the country.
