Knesset Faces Warm Debate Today on Israel’s New Economic Policy

Two motions of non-confidence in the Government are expected to be introduced tomorrow into the Knesset, Israel’s Parliament, expressing dissatisfaction with the Government’s new economic policy which followed the devaluation of the pound last February. The Knesset reconvened today following the four-week Passover recess.

The non-confidence motions, which will be introduced by Herut and the Liberal Party, are expected to touch off a warm general economic debate on issues over which the Government coalition itself is not yet in full agreement.
