World Zionist Congress Will Decide Whether Jewish Agency Should Join London Parley

Representatives of the Jewish Agency who participated in the informal talks on Palestine with the British Government informed the Colonial Office that the forthcoming World Zionist Congress will have to decide as to whether the Agency should join the conference on Palestine when it resumes its sessions on Dec. 16, it was learned here today.

The Jewish representatives made this announcement last Friday, just before the talks in London ended without results. Originally, the decision on this matter was to be made by the Small Zionist Actions Committee in Jerusalem, but in view of the fact that the World Zionist Congress is scheduled to open in Switzerland prior to the resumption of the London conference, the issue will be left for the congress, which is the supreme Zionist body.
