September 19, 1924
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Reports to the contrary notwithstanding, the Education Department of the Palestine Zionist Executive has not resigned in consequence of the decision of the Zionist Actions Committee to reduce the Keren Hayesod grant for the Hebrew Schools in Palestine from 60,000 to 58,000 pounds Sterling.

Following the resignation of the Vaad Hachinuch as a protest against the reduction, the Education Department, of which Dr. Joseph Luria is head, issued a statement to the Press that the Department, while deploring the reductions in the budged, already fixed at the lowest possible minimum, considers it its duty in view of the undertakings towards the educational system given by the Palestine Zionist Executive, not to withdraw.
