TRADES UNION CONGRESS.
From: A. E. Carthy
To: Mr. H. V. Tewson
Date: 12th April, 1939.
SUBJECT. RELIEF FOR SPAIN.
Mr. Schevenels, when the question of the type of food was raised, said that it was not food which was urgently required by the refugees. Food was being provided by the Government, but clothes, both outer garments and underclothing, for children and adults, and boots and shoes, are all to great demand.
If it would be possible to get the £2,000 spent on clothing instead of food it would be a great boon.
He is sending to affiliated National Centres and the Trade Secretariats a circular indicating the need of clothing; it should go out tomorrow.
