The House of Commons was the scene yesterday of a clash between two Jewish members of Parliament, when Leonard Franklin proposed proportionate Government loans for small business men in the course of the discussion on the Trade Facilities Bill. Michael Samuel, another Jewish Member, denounced this proposal in such vigorous terms-calling it mischievous, needless, officious and vote-catching-that he was interrupted by other members, and finally ordered by the Chairman to restrain himself.
