Isaiah Klinoff, chief of the information bureau of the Jewish Agency, who arrived here from Jerusalem this week, today said that he expected the Anglo-American inquiry committee, now deliberating on its report at Lausanne, to issue majority and minority reports. He emphasized that regardless of the decision of the committee, the Jews in Palestine were determined to continue immigration by all means at their command.

Speaking at a press conference Arranged by the United Palestine Appeal, Klinoff said that he believed the majority report would be anti-Zionist, while the minority would probably favor the Zionist cause. He said that the English members of the committee were particularly interested in the presentation of a united report. The unity demonstrated by all groups and parties within the Palestine Jewish community in asking for immigration of the surviving Jews of Europe was particularly impressive to the committee, Klinoff declared.
