Mr. W. Schevenels,
The International Federation of Trade Unions,
9, Avenue D'Orsay,
Dear Mr. Schevenels,
INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY FUND.
The National Council of Labour have decided to issue a private statement to members of the Movement in regard to what is being done to assist our Spanish comrades. A considerable portion of this statement will be devoted to the work of the above Fund.
You were good enough on 9th November to give certain information of goods which had been sent to Spain which we were able to use to good advantage for general publicity. I should now be glad if you could, for our private information, let us have:
(a) a list of the goods, quantities, and the approximate cost, which have been sent to Spain through the medium of the Fund;
(b) a list of goods and quantities which have been sent direct from other countries to Spain.
(We appreciate that this might not be complete, but take it that other National Centres are informing you of the assistance they are able to render;
(c) the amount of money which has been contributed to the International Solidarity Fund by the various countries, and
(d) any national funds which have been collected for assistance in Spain which have not been forwarded to the International Solidarity Fund.
