Britain Will Be Asked to Hear Piea for Admission of European Jews to Paiestine

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The British Government will be asked to receive within the next few days a delegation desiring to present a memorandum outlining the urgent need for the immediate admission into Palestine of tens of thousands of surviving Jews in Europe, it was decided last night at a meeting of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

A letter from the Jewish terrorist suspects sent from Palestine to a camp in the Sudan was read to the meeting. The deportees, who style themselves the “New Zicnist Organization in Exile and Detention,” appealed to the Board to intervene to secure their release. It was suggested that the government allow a well known jurist to visit the deportees to hear their complaints and make a report.

A national conference of the British Mizrachi Organization, held yesterday, sdopted a resolution reiterating its opposition to any partition scheme for Palestine and asking creation of a Jewish state.
