Palestine Will Allow Only 7,000 to Enter

The Palestine government has agreed to grant only seven thousand immigration certificates for the period of October to March, it was reliably learned today. This is in the face of a demand for 24,000 certificates made by the Jewish Agency for Palestine

The 2,000 certificates already advanced to the Jewish Agency against the new schedules, used for the German Jews, will be deducted from the allotted amount for October-March.

The Palestine high commissioner, Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, it is understood, in a recent interview with members of the new Jewish Agency executive, pointed out a great difference in their computations of the labor shortage of Palestine and the figures compiled by the government.
