Meat Situation in Tel Aviv Acute; Patients in Danger

Chicken killing has been discontinued and the Jewish butchers are confiscating all meat and chicken brought in from the colonies as the meat situation here grows more acute. In the opinion of a number of doctors, the temporary abattoir is capable of being made sanitary, and they point to the more unhygienic conditions in the abattoirs of other Palestine towns. The Tel Aviv municipality, Kehillah and rabbis have telegraphed to the Chief Secretary, asking him to allow slaughtering at the improvised abattoir on the site of the abandoned tannery. Doctors have complained that their patients are under-going a hardship in being compelled to do without meat.
