Cable Protest to Premier

Download PDF for this date

A cable signed by Alfred Nathan and Rabbi S. A. Goldstein was sent today to Premier Forbes in London on behalf of the Jews of New Zealand protesting against the British government’s White Paper on Palestine. The cable says that the government’s new policy marks a changed attitude by Great Britain and a violation of the pledges by British statesmen and by the late John Massey and Sir Joseph Ward, former premiers of New Zealand.

The cable asks Premier Forbes to convey the protest to Premier MacDonald and Lord Passfield.
