Mr. J.L. Holloway.
Mitcham and District Trades Council,
108, Manor Way,
Dear Mr. Holloway,
International Brigade Association and Friends of Republican Spain.
Thank you for your letter which has now come to hand requesting guidance from the T.U.C. concerning an appeal you have received from the International Brigade Association. This body is Communist-controlled and association with it is therefore not open to Trades Councils.
Thank you for making the enquiry.
