Gafni Withdraws Pri Hagalil Bill


Chairman Moshe Gafni of the Knesset Finance Committee announced, Monday, that he was taking a committee bill to deal with the closing of Pri Hagalil produce processing plant off the agenda. Gafni told the committee that the manager of the government's investment center informed him that the cabinet would make a decision about unusual assistance to the plant which, it owner says, could allow it to recruit 50 workers.

Gafni added that such a solution was preferable to legislation. Committee member Ruchama Avraham-Balila expressed disappointment in the decision, given all that the workers have been through, saying she was sorry the measure did not reach at least a preliminary reading.
