(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The government bill proposing to modify the numerus clausus law will not be taken up at this session of parliament, present indications show.

It seems that due to the pressure of the anti-Semitic parties, the government has abandoned its insistence on the bill. In a statement issued by Vicespeaker of Parliament, Puky, he declared that the numerus clausus bill will not be considered an urgent question in the near future.
