Roumanian Under-secretary of State for Minorities Threatens to Resign Because Government Done Nothin

The Under-Secretary of State for Minorities, Herr Brandsch, who was one of the leaders of the German Minority Party in Roumania, had decided to resign, according to a report in the Jewish daily “Uj Felet”, of Transylvania, as a protest against the Government’s attitude in regard to the minorities.

The Government has kept none of its promises made to the minorities, he has complained, the paper says. The schools of the minorities have not been given the necessary assistance, and the Department for Minorities which it created, has not been given any power to change matters in this regard.

Herr Brandsch, it states, has said that he will make a last attempt to raise the question with the Prime Minister, Professor Jorga, and with the King, and if this fails he will tender his resignation.
