Col. Josiah Wedgwood, British labor leader, extended the greetings of British labor to the Jewish labor organizations of Palestine at a conference of the Achduth Ha’avodah in Tel Aviv.

Col. Wedgwood promised the Palestine Jewish workers that he will urge the British Labor Party to support the demands of the Jewish workers in Palestine to the British government, particularly the demand for state land for Jewish colonization. He expressed confidence in the success of the Jewish work in Palestine, adding that an understanding between the Arabs and Jews is necessary.

A reception in honor of the guest was arranged for tonight by the Zionist Executive of Jerusalem.
