(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The government ordinance for the withdrawal of the concessions for the sale of government monopolies, tobacco, spirits, salt, matches, etc., from the present holders was postponed for another three years, reports in the metropolitan press state today.

The ordinance, if put into effect, as enacted some time ago would have deprived thirty thousand Jewish families in the Republic of Poland of their livehood. It was planned that these concessions be given to the veterans of the Polish army. It is simultaneously stated that a new bill on the subject has been prepared by the government and will soon be introduced into parliament.
