Mr. E. Kavanagh,
Leeds Trades Council,
36 Selby Road,
Dear Mr. Kavanagh,
International Brigade Association
Many thanks for your letter of the 27th April in which you enquire of the attitude of the T.U.C. to the above named organisation and what relations, if any, trades councils should have with it.
For your information, this is a Communist controlled body, and association with it is therefore not open to trades councils.
Your Council's action in seeking this information is much appreciated.
