August 24, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Preparation of the agenda for the Jewish Agency administrative committee meeting has been occupying the attention of the executive committee of the Agency which has been in session yesterday and today.

Many members of the administrative committee have already arrived here for the meeting which will be held here August 29. Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency, will arrive here Monday. Felix M. Warburg, chairman of the administrative committee of the Agency, is expected here about next Saturday as are also several other non-Zionist members of the committee.

It is reported here that in private consultations among the Zionist members Lord Passfield was severely criticized because the suspension of Jewish immigration certificates had not been rescinded. An early withdrawal of the suspension would have considerably strengthened the position of the Zionist executive at the meeting of the Actions Committee of the Zionist Organization which starts here tomorrow. Lord Passfield, however, has insisted that he could make no such decision before receiving the report of Sir John Hope Simpson who recently left Palestine after completing an investigation into the problems of immigration and land. Sir John is expected in London on September 1.
