Download PDF for this date

The Palestine government has decided to postpone introduction of a quota system for granting licenses to German Jewish physicians settling in Palestine, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned today. Government officials granted 106 licenses to practice in Palestine to German Jewish refugee doctors this week.

Quotas for exiled Jewish medical men will be introduced within a few months, government officers said.
