London Executive Moves to Resume Agency Parley with British Non-zionists

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The suggestion that the discussions, begun in 1924, toward the extension of the Jewish Agency, between British Zionists and non-Zionists, be resumed, is contained in a letter addressed to the Board of Jewish Deputies by the Zionist Executive.

The agenda of the Board’s meeting states that the letter of the Zionist Executive invites the Board to designate representatives to meet with the Zionist Organization, representatives of the Joint Foreign Committee and the Anglo-Jewish Association, toward constituting the Jewish Agency. An invitation similar to this was accepted by the Board in 1924 and the discussion subsequently suspended, pending the progress made in the United States. In view of the Non-Zionist Conference on Palestine, to be held in New York on October 20, the Zionist Executive suggests that the discussion between British Zionists and non-Zionists be resumed.
