The Labor Alignment decided Sunday to establish a special committee to study various proposals for the solution of the Palestine refugee problem suggested at a recent debate on the subject in the Alignment’s political committee. The proposals dealt mainly with the West Bank refugees, not those in the Gaza Strip. One proposal was to concentrate the refugees in one area, preferably a fertile district where they could engage in agriculture. Another proposal advocated dispersing the refugees in West Bank towns and villages. Premier Golda Meir cautioned Sunday that there could be no permanent solution of the refugee problem until there is a final political settlement and a permanent peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
