Jewish Agency Drafting Post-war Plan Providing for Large-scale Immigration, Settlement

The Jewish Agency for Palestine is preparing an extensive post-war reconstruction plan based on large scale immigration and colonization, which is aimed at raising the economic, social and cultural standards of the Palestine population, it was learned here today. The plan will shortly be submitted to the British and palestine governments.

Meanwhile, the central committee of the World Mizrachi Organization adopted a resolution expressing its determination not to cooperate in carrying out the post-war reconstruction plan announced several months ago by the Palestine administration. Jewish opposition to this plan is based on the fact that it assumes that the conditions provided for under the White paper of 1939 will prevail in the country after the war. At the same time, the Mizrachi went on record demanding a post-war blueprint founded on unlimited immigration and settlement.
