Revelations that anti-Jewish discriminations are practiced in Glasgow against tenants residing in buildings established with government funds were made in the House of Commons today by Col. John Buchan, M.P.

The British Parliamentarian wanted to know what steps had been taken by the government to prevent the repetition of such discriminations and whether it were true that the owners of the buildings offered to allocate special houses for Jews so that they would not live in the same apartment buildings in which non-Jews reside.

Under Secretary A. N. Skelton, replying to Buchan’s interpellation, declared that cases of discrimination had taken place in the tenement houses to which the British deputy referred. However, the owners of the buildings are now reconsidering their policy and are again admitting Jewish tenants, he added.
