Jewish Agency Denies Executive Meeting Shifted from Paris; Kaplan Arrives in London

A Jewish Agency spokesman here today denied a report that the scheduled meeting of the Agency executive has been shifted from Paris to London. He said that the meeting, which is due to be held next week, will convene in the French capital.

(The New York office of the Jewish Agency also denied that the executive would meet in London. It said that the meeting will open on schedule in Paris provided air transportation can be obtained in time for the U.S. members of the Agency and David Ben Gurion, chairman of the executive, who is now in this country.)

Eliezer Kaplan, treasurer of the Jewish Agency, arrived in London today in connection with the present discussions on Palestine between U.S. and British experts.
