The assurance that he wishes to secure the fair participation of Jewish labor in the government works, particularly in the construction of the Haifa harbor, was Sir John Chancellor’s reply to the demand presented by the Zionist Executive and the Palestine Labor Federation for the employment of Jewish labor.
