The Legal Commission of the Prussian Diet has rejected the motion introduced by the Nazi Party to prohibit Shechita in Prussia.

This was the first motion introduced by the Nazi Party immediately after their victory in the Prussian elections.

All the parties in the House, with the exception of the Nazis and the German Nationals who are their close allies, voted against the motion.
