Download PDF for this date

The international Wailing Wall Commission today concluded its deliberations after meeting in Paris for three days, Judge Charles Barde, one of the commissioners, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today. The last meeting was held Saturday and the report was unanimously adopted. It is to be forwarded to the British government within the next ten days. M. Barde said that the Commission itself would not publish the report but it is possible that the British government may do so.

The Commission of three has spent several weeks in Palestine investigating the claims of Moslems and Jews to the Wailing Wall.
