IN YOUR REPLY REFER TO
F.M.A.2. 13th December, 1938.
Sir Walter Citrine, K.B.E.,
Trades Union Congress,
S. W. 1.
Dear Sir Walter,
I desire to say that my Executive Committee at their Quarterly Meeting this month considered appeals from several branches of this Union to the effect that financial assistance should be made to the International Brigade and their dependants.
I may say that my Executive Committee felt that the appeal issued on behalf of the International Brigade should be endorsed; and further expressed the view that it would be appropriate if the Trades Union Congress General Council were to make a direct appeal for funds through the Trade Union Movement.
Accordingly, I shall be glad if you will bring the same before the General Council for consideration.
