11th January, 1940.
Señor A. de Gondra,
14, Eccleston Sq.,
Dear Señor de Gondra,
I am pleased to learn from your letter of 10th January that Mr. Arenaza is meeting with success in his efforts to secure employment for the Basque and Spanish seamen in our charge.
The question whether permission can be sought for the admission of Señor Berañano's four children from France, in the event of his securing employment enabling him to support his family, is one which had probably better be deferred. So many issues are involved, such as his income, the suitability and the permanence of the employment, his status as a refugee, etc., that clear light cannot be thrown on the subject until he has actually established himself in some occupation. Perhaps when this occurs, you will raise the matter with us again.
