Download PDF for this date

Barnett Janner, Labor member of Parliament and president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, drew the government’s attention this weekend to the fact that the Sudanese Government is asking Jewish Egyptian subjects to leave the Sudan.

Speaking in Commons, Mr. Janner said that the move had come at the instigation of Egypt. He asked the government if British plans for receiving refugees from Egypt apply to refugees of this type. A government spokesman said that he would give sympathetic consideration to this point.
