October 1930, British Restrict Jewish Immigration to Palestine

Sir Hope Simpson

“The whole system under which immigration into Palestine is controlled by the administration has recently been most carefully examined, and in the month of May (e.g. 1930) it was considered necessary by his Majesty’s Government, whilst leaving undisturbed Jewish immigration in its various other forms, to suspend the further issue of certificates for the admission of immigrants under the Labour Schedule—i.e., as employed persons (over and above the 950 already sanctioned) for the half year ending the 30th of September, 1930, pending the result of this examination and the determination of future policy.”
