The question of cooperation with the forthcoming Royal Commission inquiry into the Palestine disorders was the major issue today in an all-day debate at the conference here of the World Zionist Organization Actions Committee.

The opinion was voiced by several speakers that there would be no cooperation if immigration were stopped.

Jewish unemployment in Palestine has been reduced by 2,000 from the February figure of 6,000, the committee was told by the Palestine executive of the Jewish Agency.

Reporting on measures it has taken to combat unemployment among Jews in the Holy Land, the executive listed among them creation of an unemployment fund and financial stimulation of Jewish public works.

The report discloses that 800 Jews will be employed on road projects linking Jewish colonies as a result of negotiations with the Government. It also reveals that 400 young Jews and Jewesses have been transferred from the city of Tel Aviv to colonies.
