Mr. W. Schevenels,
The International Federation of Trade Unions,
9, Avenue d'Orsay,
Dear Mr. Schevenels,
You will be aware that at Congress the following suggestions were approved in connection with help for Spain -
(1) That a campaign be organised nationally and internationally in conjunction with the International Federation of Trade
Unions and the Labour and Socialist International.
(2) That, through these international bodies, the suggestion be made to their affiliated French organisations that the French and British Labour Movements make simultaneous approach to their respective Governments calling for the removal of the ban on arms.
(3) That the campaign be linked with a further appeal for funds, and that the attention of the Executives of affiliated Unions be specially drawn to the suggestions made to and by Congress in regard to the need for exceptional efforts to be made.
(4) That affiliated Unions report, in a period prescribed by the General Council, to the General Council the nature of the maximum efforts they can make to aid the International Solidarity Fund.
