Attached is a copy of the letter which my Executive Committee have sent to the Foreign Secretary.
They would earnestly request the General Council to give such support as may be possible to the efforts being made to secure the release of Members of the INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE now interned.
Regardless of the Political opinions of these men, they have, beyond question proved themselves convinced and determined Anti Fascists, and my Executive Committee consider the Movement is under an obligation to give the utmost possible assistance.
Trusting that the General Council will give this matter consideration.
