Committee decision 28/10/37
IT WAS RESOLVED that the Basque Children's Committee and the National Joint Committee in placing on record their gratitude to the three Commissioners for the time given and trouble taken, would also like to thank them for their assistance in securing that the requests presented to date were considered individually and not en bloc.
FURTHERMORE, in the expectation that the necessary permission will be forthcoming for the Committees' two representatives to accompany the children as suggested by the Commission, and subject to the representatives being able to reassure themselves that the children are returned to their respective parents or guardians, the Committees will put in hand immediately the necessary arrangements, so that at the earliest moment practicable 500 children whose parents it is agreed desire their return, may be sent back to Bilbao. If it is decided, for practical reasons, to send the children back in more than one detachment, the first will leave immediately permission has been given by the de facto government for them to be accompanied by the Committees' supervisor.
