Less Immigrants Admitted to Palestine Than Authorized by Quotas During Recent Months

Little more than one-half the number of immigrants authorized to enter Palestine during the first four months of this year were actually admitted, Zionist quarters here indicated today.

These sources pointed out that somewhat under 3,500 Jews were admitted although the quota amounted to 6,000. They emphasized that this was not the fault of the Jewish Agency which distributed those certificates allotted to it, but of the Palestine Government which has draped miles of red tape over the immigration problem.
