Britain Submits New Proposal to Peace Conference in Protection of Jews in Rumania

The British delegation at the Peace Conference today revealed that it has submitted a new amendment to the draft of the peace treaty with Rumania, with a view to guaranteeing the rights of Jews and other national minorities there. The proposed amendment reads:

“Rumania further undertakes that, with the exception of such special regulations affecting foreigners as are by international custom normally applicable, the laws in force in Rumania, shall not, either in their content or application, discriminate or entail any discrimination between different classes, sections or categories of persons under Rumanian jurisdiction, irrespective of race, sex, language or religion, whether with reference to their persons, property, business or financial interests, state, political or civic rights or any other matter.”
