Download PDF for this date

The question of the Jews of Germany was brought up in the House of Commons again this afternoon when Geoffrey Mander, National Labor member, asked if the Government had any reason to believe that the treament of the Jews had become more lenient in Germany or whether the persecution of the Jews was still continuing.

Barnett Janner then brought up the question of the Jewish position in Upper Silesia, where the League of Nations Council has ordered the restoration of civil and political rights to the Jewish population.

Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Captain Anthony Eden, asked for time in which to answer the questions raised.

The assassination of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, Zionist labor leader, in Palestine, was also reported to the House by the Colonial Office. Details of the case were reported as well as the fact that Abraham Stavsky, who has been arrested in the case, has put forward a defense in the form of an alibi.
