Assurances were given by Government officials to Isaac Ben Zvi, who sought them on behalf of the Jewish national council.

Meanwhile, a scheduled showing of the Keren Hayesod (Jewish colonization agency) film “The Promised Land” was prohibited by the authorities today until a calmer atmosphere prevails.
