Prime Minister Levi Eshkol disclosed in the Knesset (Parliament) last night that the national police headquarters and several Government offices now located in Tel Aviv are preparing to move to East Jerusalem. He said, in a reply to a question, that the Government is considering the relocation in East Jerusalem of several units of the Ministries of Housing and Agriculture, the public works department and the engineering services of the Post Office.

In addition to police headquarters, the offices that will relocate in East Jerusalem are the philatelic service of the Post Office, the employment service of the Ministry of Labor and the State Prison Supervisory Commission.
