Scottish Labor Unit Hits British Policy in Palestine; Calls for Abolition of White Paper

A resolution condemning the Labor Government’s policy on Palestine and calling for the removal of restrictions on Jewish immigration to that country were adopted here at the annual convention of the Aryshire Labor Federation.

The resolution, which was adopted by a vote of 136-13, emphasized that: “The extreme measures taken to restrict Jewish immigration to Palestine is a continuation of the notorious White Paper policy which is utterly at variance with the policy of the Labor Party.” It also urged implementation of the Labor Party’s platform of 1944 and 1945 which called for a Jewish national home in Palestine.
