Protest Against Immigration Chief Dropped by Britain

No further action will be taken by the British government regarding the protests against the statement of the chief immigration officer of Palestine to the Shaw Commission that immigration certificates were supplied in blanks to the Jewish Federation of Labor. This statement was made today in the House of Commons by Dr. Drummond Shiels in reply to a question from William Brown, Laborite.

Brown had asked what steps the government proposed to take with regard to the distribution of immigration certificates in view of Sir Simpson’s findings that the statement of the chief immigration officers was not exact. Dr. Shiels said that inquiries had been made but that nothinng conclusive had been found and it was not felt that any useful purpose would be served by pursuing the matter further.
