High Commissioner Promises Consideration of Requests for Entry of German Jews

A promise to consider sympathetically the question of the entry of German Jews into Palestine was made today by the High Commissioner, Sir Arthur Wauchope, when Dr. C. Arlosoroff, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency, called on him with a report of the Jewish situation in Germany.

Dr. Arlosoroff submitted three requests to the High Commissioner. He asked firstly, that the Immigration Department should make immediately available for German Jews without means several hundred immigration certificates; secondly, that a larger immigration of German Jews with capital should be made possible; thirdly that Palestinian residents should be privileged to bring into the country relatives from Germany, particularly wives and children.

It is understood that the High Commissioner promised to give a considered reply to these requests on Thursday.
