Demand Labor Executive Act to Secure Change of Front on Palestine British Plan

Early action to secure a change of front on the Palestine situation has practically been demanded of the National Executive of the Labor Party, it was learned by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today. At a meeting last night the Palestine policy of the government was considered by the National Executive, and it was decided to make representations to the premier on the subject.

A special committee under the sub-chairmanship of Stanley Hirst, who is chairman of the Labor party, was elected to consider the material submitted by the Poale Zion, Jewish workmen’s party.

Considering that dissatisfaction with the Palestine statement exists in Labor ranks and among the members of parliament, many of whom are friendly to the Zionist idea, have numbers of Jews in their constituencies, and are pledged to sponsor the Jewish National home, the National Executive adopted resolutions for early action on the subject.
