Jewish Ex-traders, Formerly Barred, May Now Go to Colonies

Jewish ex-traders who desired to settle on the land but who had not been permitted to leave the villages by local financial agents because of unpaid taxes will now be able to emigrate as a result of the intervention of the land commissariat with the finance commissariat. The latter has ordered that Jewish extraders who desire to be transferred to productive work should not be detained and that all taxes due from extraders unable to pay but who are now becoming workers should be cancelled.
