Two hundred Jewish refugees, constituting the last group of the Jewish refugees stranded on their way to America in Eastleigh camp because of the U. S. immigration quota, were allowed to remain in Great Britain by special permission of the Home Secretary, it was learned today when Otto Schiff, president of the Jewish Shelter of London, submitted his report to the thirty-fifth annual meeting of the organization.

The Home Secretary permitted the refugees to remain in the United Kingdom on condition that the Jewish organizations will guarantee that they will be provided with work, without affecting the situation of British labor.
