(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The government bill introducing changes in the Polish constitution was adopted today in its third and final reading. The Sejm also adopted the bill granting broad powers to the government.

The amendment of the Club of Jewish Deputies to the effect that the broad powers be given only to the Bartel government was rejected in view of the fact that these broad powers would automatically cease with the resignation of the present government.
