4 . FINANCIAL POSITION.
(a) Mr. Garratt reported that the balance at the Bank in respect of the Basque Children's Committee was about £800, and of the National Joint Committee, £2500.
Since the first of January funds have been coming in at the rate of about £ 900 per week, but this was the result of sustained and high pressure appeals. The average weekly expenditure of the Committee is about £800 per week, for 1,100 children. It was decided that in order to capitalise the present situation a Press appeal should be made at once, and this will be done within a day or so.
