(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Jewish deputies in the Polish parliament will, in all probabability, refrain from voting on the preliminary budget for 1927, it was learned today from reliable sources.

In connection with the forthcoming debate in parliament on the budget, a general meeting of the Club of Jewish Deputies was called to clarify the attitude of the Club toward the Pilsudski government. It is evident that there are no opponents in principle to the Pilsudski cabinet. Even those who are not in agreement with Pilsudskis policy are mild in voicing their criticism, emphasizing that the government has shown its goodwill, although many of the demands of the Jewish population have not yet been fulfilled.

It is understood that the spokesman of the Club will be instructed to emphasize the satisfaction of the Club with the fact that certain demands of the Jewish population have been met by the government and at the same time to express its criticism that many of the demands, particularly those concerning the Jewish schools, were not yet given consideration.
