Liverpool Jews Enter Fourth Meatless Week As Slaugrterers Continue Boycott

The Jewish community of Liverpool is now in its fourth week without kosher meat supplies and there is a possibility that the boycott by slaughterers on the handling of meat intended for Jewish consuption may spread to other areas.

Despite appeals from Jewish and labor circles, the slaughterers have restated their intention of not handling meat for Jews as a protest against the nanging of two British sergeants in Palestine by the Irgun. The strikers have announced that they are considering issuing a leaflet to other slaughterers urging them to emulate their action.
