Socialist International to Consider Question of Jewish Immigration into Palestine: 10 Poale Zionists

The question of Jewish immigration into Palestine, as well as the right to work there, will be brought up before the Fourth Congress of the Socialist and Labour International, which is holding its sessions here, it became known to-day.

This question will be considered in connection with the question of general unemployment in the various countries of the world when the problem of the world economic crisis will be taken up by the Congress.

Ten members of the Poale Zion Party and six members of the Bund, the Jewish Social Democratic Party, are participating as delegates at the Congress.

Dr. Chaim Arlossoroff and Mr. Berl Locker, the two newly-elected members of the Zionist World Executive, who are here as representatives of Jewish Labour at the Congress, addressed a meeting last night arranged by the League for a Working Palestine. The speakers reported to the meeting the proceedings and results of the Seventeenth Zionist Congress. The meeting was also addressed by the leader of the French Social Democratic Party, M. Longuet, who delivered a very friendly pro-Palestine speech.
