The Government will shortly announce measures for exclusion of Jews from civil service, partial exclusion from the press and a proportionate restriction in professions, it was understood today after a Cabinet meeting. Liquidation of the refugee problem and revision of Jews’ citizenships were among the questions discussed by the Cabinet, according to an official announcement. Meanwhile, the Slovakian Government announced that it has appointed a commission to draft an anti-Jewish law, which is expected to be published within a fortnight. The Union of Czech Lawyers decided at a meeting to expel all Jewish members. Expulsion of Jews was also voted by the Union of Czech Physicians.
