SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Lord Plumer, High Commissioner of Palestine, was authorized to enact an ordinance regulating women’s and children’s labor in the country, according to a statement made in the House of Commons yesterday by Major Ormsby Gore, Understate Secretary for the Colonies, in reply to a question from Susan Lawrence.

Replying to Commander Kenworthy, Sir Ormsby Gore stated that the High Commissioner had not asked the gove-ernment for a grant to relieve the victims of the earthquake since the funds required had been raised privately.
