Mr. R.A. Palmer,
Co-operative Union, Ltd.,
Dear Mr. Palmer,
I am in receipt of your letter of the 18th August, with regard to the appeal which the National Council of Labour have issued on behalf of the workers in Spain.
I note that the International Co-operative Alliance will most probably be issuing an appeal within the next few days and in view of this fact, I quite understand your position.
