The British government was urged to revise the Palestine immigration laws to enable Jews, especially refugees, to enter Palestine freely during the war, in a resolution adopted by a meeting today of the Jewish State Party.

The Government was also asked to appoint a Royal Commission to probe the circumstances of the Strume refugees being refused admission into Palestine and to take measures against those responsible for the disaster.
