Leading Jewish organizations of Britain are preparing various documents on problems of Jewish interest for presentation to the United Nations Assembly which opens its sessions here this week.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews is planning to submit memorandums dealing with the expected trusteeship machinery, the Commission to safeguard human rights and the proposed refugee organization to replace the present Inter-Governmental Committee.

No decision has been reached by the Board on whether to take these steps independently or in conjunction with the American Jewish Conference and the World Jewish Congress.

The British section of the Congress has already appointed a committee to deal with the matters that may be taken up by the UNO. The Jewish Agency is also understood to be making preparations for the coming assembly. Memorandums will also be presented by the Agudas Israel organization.
