January 19, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A draft of a law abolishing the disabilities from which Polish Jews are suffering and which have been in force since the Czarist regime will soon be submitted by Deputy Apolinary Hartglass. Dr. Hartglass has been chosen to present this bill by the Legal Commission of the Lower House.

An urgent demand for the introduction of percentage norm against Jews is expected to be made by the so-called People’s Democrats Deputies. The same wing announced its intention to contest the legality of the law prohibiting political agitation on the part of the Rozwoj.

Reports from Lemberg and Lodz say that the local police has successfully put down attempts to introduce economic boycott of Jews.
