Report Palestine Offered Agency 8,000 Certificates is Denied

Moshe Shertok, head of the political department of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, yesterday denied a report that the Palestine Government had offered 8,000 labor immigration certificates to the Agency on condition they be used by November. The Agency was said to have rejected the offer on the grounds that it would be impossible to fulfill the condition. An allotment of 11,800 certificates, permitting the entry of approximately 25,000 Jewish immigrants in the labor category, has been asked by the Agency for the six-month period ending April, 1937.
