Says Simpson Will Suggest Britain Spend Large Sum to Aid Palestine Immigration

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Sir John Simpson will recommend that the British government should spend a substantial sum of money to further immigration to Palestine, Daniel Hopkin, Labor M. P., declared in an address at a Zionist meeting here at which he gave a forecast of the recommendations that will be made in Sir John’s report which is to be published shortly.

Sir John will also probably say that there is land in Palestine for more immigrants and at the same time will suggest new land laws as well as a legislative assembly, Mr. Hopkin declared. He further stressed the vital points for the establishment of the Jewish National Home which the British government “must observe when issuing a statement on its future Palestine policy which is expected soon.”

Mr. Hopkin also pointed out the necessity for the defense of the colonies, maximum and not minimum immigration with the close cooperation of the Jewish Agency, and urged that the Palestine government should know the policy of the home government and be prepared to carry it out or resign.

David L. Cohn, Jewish attorney from the Bronx, has been nominated by the Republican judicial convention of Manhattan and the Bronx for one of the five places on the state Supreme Court bench. Mr. Cohen, who is 43, has never held public office before. He is a member of a number of Jewish organizations, including the Federation of Polish Jews of America.
