Much concern was displayed in leading Jewish circles over the possibility of the concessions law being put into effect.

The Minister of Finance in receiving a delegation of the Association of Polish War Invalids stated that he will see to it that the law to withdraw the concessions on a number of monopolized articles from the present holders and turn them over to the war invalids would be put into effect.

A long fight preceded the enactment of this law by the Sejm. The Club of Jewish Deputies actively opposed the enactment of this law because of the fact that it would mean the economic ruin of 30,000 Jewish families.
