Download PDF for this date

A House of Commons standing committee on Britain’s new race relations bill was told today that the word "religion" must be spelled out in the legislation if British Jews and others are to be protected from discrimination that still exists in this country. The bill, in its original form, applied only to discrimination on grounds of color.
