Palestine, British Delegates Clash on Palestine at International Socialist Conference

The problem of Palestine was forcibly introduced at the International Socialist Conference here this week-end when Goldie Meirson, political chief of the Jerusalem section of the Jewish Agency, clashed with a delegate from the British Labor Party.

Mrs. Meirson demanded that the Palestine issue be debated by the full Socialist Congress, while Morgan Phillips, general secretary of the British Labor Party, attempted to gag a full discussion. A delegate from South Africa insisted that if Palestine is debated it be linked with the issue of displaced persons. The dispute will be settled at a later time.
