Jerusalem Asks Government to Fix Maximum Rents

Download PDF for this date

While all shops in Jerusalem remained closed in protest against high rents, the Municipal Council voted today to recommend to the Palestine Government the extension to Jerusalem of a rent restrictions ordinance regulating the rentals which can be charged.

The shopkeepers had pressed for a municipal ordinance fixing maximum rents. They claimed that rentals had risen to inordinate levels.
