Mr. E. Stonelake,
Aberdare Divisional Labour Party,
36, Hert Street,
Dear Mr. Stonelake,
"Save the Basque Children" Fund.
I have your letter of the 7th inst., stating that you propose to hold a flag day throughout your Constituency on September 10th and 11th in aid of the above fund, and asking whether we have any flags and collecting boxes which we could supply to you.
I am sorry we have not a supply of flags and boxes, but if you obtain the necessary police permission to organise the flag day, we could, if you so desire, get quotations for flags from our printers, but I doubt whether we could get them any cheaper than you could locally. So far as the boxes are concerned, I think it will be best for you to approach some local organisation which has conducted a flag day, and they will probably lend you boxes. I am enclosing a label for the boxes, and these can be supplied free of charge.
I am just wondering, however, whether your Party has turned down the idea of a house to house collection by means of envelopes, as we suggested in our circular of February last. I am enclosing a copy of a further appeal which is being sent out this week and also a sample of the envelopes. The leaflet, will be supplied free of charge and the envelopes at the rate of 4/- per thousand.
It is not necessary to obtain police permission for house to house collection, and as there appears to be a
In order to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, some names within this file have been redacted. While we have made every effort to comply with the Act, there may be other named individuals within this file who are still living. We will remove any names immediately we are made aware that this is the case or if any offence is caused to living relatives.
