1st June, 1954.
Mr. W.J. Waring,
Bristol Trades Council,
Old Market Street,
Dear Mr. Waring,
"International Brigade Association and Friends of Republican Spain"
I have had an enquiry from you on the note paper of the Bristol Borough Labour party enquiring about the status of the above-named organisation. I see the letter was not signed by you personally and I take it, therefore, that you make the enquiry in your capacity as Secretary of the Bristol Trades Council.
The above Association is a Communist body and association with it is therefore not open to Trades Councils.
I appreciate your action in making the enquiry.
