A deputation led by Prov. Selig Brodetsky, president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, which was received today by Hone Secretary James Chuter Ede, expressed concern over the emergence of the new Mosley Party. The delegation urged that measures be taken to curb publications and statements encouraging racial discrimination.

Mr. Ede promised that he would consider the proposals, but stressed that the question might invoke interference with the rights of free speech and public assembly.
