Poland in addition to America, will be the Palestine baked matzos, manufactured in the Haifa Flour Mill established by Baron Edmund de Rothschild, according to a decision of the Polish cabinet, made known yesterday.

The cabinet decided on a reduction of 60 per cent of the duty on matzos imported from Palestine.

It was declared that the Rothschild flour mills in Haifa will export 100,000 kilos of matzos to Poland for the coming Passover season.

The Jewish press here welcome the decision of the Polish government and praises Baron de Rothschild for helping the Palestine pioneer colonies by introducing the matzos industry, which will increase the opportunities for Palestine farmers.
