(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Legislation which will introduce favorable changes in the status of the Jewish population in Roumania as a result of the recent agreement concluded between the Liberal party and the Union of Roumanian Jews, of which Dr. William Filderman is the leader, will be enacted during the forthcoming session of parliament, it was learned to-day.

According to well informed sources, the Roumanian cabinet has decided to submit a bill at the new session of parliament which will open Saturday, regulating the status of alien religions.

The government organ, “Cuvintul,” states that the government is preparing a bill to revise the citizenship law which will in all likelihood enable 10,000 Roumanian Jews to become citizens.
