troversy surrounding the mail-
ings of a speech early this year by
an Education official which re-

nation," continued this month

majority will reject any changes
in the existing law," Peres told the
Conservative laymen and rabbis
assembled here. He stated that
the Labor Party would continue to
oppose any legislation that might
