58 Jews Listed As Candidates in British General Election; 33 Backed by Labor Party

The list of candidates of the various parties for the British general election, scheduled for Feb, 23, was published this week-end and contains the names of 58 Jews, of whom 33 were nominated by the Labor Party, ten by the Liberals, nine by the Communists and five by the Conservatives, whild David L. Lipson will run for reelection as an independent.

Jewish circles today expressed surprise at the total failure to date of the Fascist Union movement to nominate candidates for the general election. Only one candidate–F.B. Price-Heywood–has been nominated by the Mosleyite party in the Westmorland rural district. Several weeks ago fascist street corner orators announced that at least 50 candidates will be nominated on the Mosley ticket.
