British Government Protests Syrian Government’s Boycott of Palestine Jewish Goods

The British Government has expressed its official disapproval to the Syrian Government of the latter’s boycott of Jewish-made goods from Palestine, Philip J. Noel-Baker, Minister of State, declared in Commons today.

Noel-Baker made his announcement in answer to a question from Barnett Janner, Labor, who demanded that the government ask the Syrian delegate to the United Nations to take corrective action because the Syrian Government’s boycott decree violates the U.N. charter’s provisions aimed at preventing racial discrimination. Noel-Baker said he agreed with Jannor but added “we had better leave it at that.”
