Foreign Minister Bartel Asks Speedy Removal of Czaristic Restrictions on Polish Jews

Kazimierz Bartel, Polish foreign minister, has advised Minister of Justice Dutkiewicz to take steps to speed up the third reading of the draft of the law annulling the extant Czaristic restrictions against the Jews of Poland in order that the Polish parliament’s constitutional committee can bring the matter up as soon as possible before parliament. The first and second readings of the law were adopted in March 1929.

Mr. Bartel informed the Minister of Justice that lately the Jewish deputies in parliament were pressing for the annulment of the restrictions and he advised the Minister of Justice to support the adoption of the law in committee.
