Tel Aviv Must Protest to High Commissioner First

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The cabled protest of the Tel Aviv municipolity against the relentless policy of deportations carried on by the Immigration Department of the Palestine government in cases of Jewish immigrants who have transgressed slightly against the formalities of the immigration regulations, will not be considered by the Colonial Office, it was declared today.

The Colonial Office has declined to act on the protest because the manner of its transmission was contrary to the established procedure, which provides that complaints against the Palestine administration, either to the League of Nations or to the British government must be submitted through the office of the High Commissioner in Palestine.
