Dear Mr. Tewson,
"SAVE THE CHILDREN" FUND.
Our Southern District just recently sent a cheque for £10. to the above Fund.
In remitting this amount to me it was pointed out that some dissatisfaction has arisen in the Southampton area concerning certain changes at the camp wherein the refugee children from Spain have been placed.
Without any definite authenticity however we have been informed that the work formerly done on a voluntary basis has now ceased, and that paid persons, with some Government official, are now dealing with this work. In addition, some doubt has been cast upon the administration of the Funds.
I would be glad to have your comments on this as I feel sure you will have the facts.
