See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Council of the Palestine Jewish Labor Confederation has adopted a series of resolutions protesting against the passive attitude of the Jewish population in Palestine towards attacking the Government and the Municipal Council for not employing Jewish labor. The resolution protests against certain Government departments entrusting important works to foreign contractors. The resolution emphasizes that the British military authorities in Palestine have had the Aerodrome at Ramleh constructed by a foreign contractor. Other public works have been handed over to the same foreign contractor without tenders having previously been invited. One non-Palestinian contractor has carried out Government works for the sum amounting to about LE. 100,000
